Cork rap kids ready for the Junior Eurovision

Junior Eurovision Cork

Tomorrow will be an exciting day for five young Cork rappers as they travel to Dublin to take part in the TV auditions for this year's Junior Eurovision, to be aired on TG4.

The five rappers are involved in GMCBeats' rap and beats workshops at Youth Work Ireland Cork in partnership with Music Generation Cork City, and were selected out of hundreds of entries to take part.

Their original song, "Is Maith Liom É", is the only rap entry and is performed completely in the Irish language.

The original English version, “I Like It”, was written, produced and recorded at GMCBeats/Music Generation studio kabin in Knocknaheeny as part of the Webwise anti-cyberbullying campaign and it was performed at Dublin Castle in February 2015 for Safer Internet Day and the music video went viral in the days following the event.

The group are in with a chance of representing Ireland at the Junior Eurovision finals in Bulgaria in November.

We would like to wish the young musicians the very best of luck tomorrow.
