Youth Work Ireland Cork

YWIC Group Vying to represent Ireland at Junior Eurovision.

5 of the 6 young rappers vying to represent Ireland



Youth Work Ireland Cork are have sent a group of 6 rap hopefuls to the 2nd
round of auditions, which are being held to choose what act will represent
Ireland in Bulgaria, at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. This is the
first year Ireland are going forward for this competition. The 2nd
round auditions where held in Dublin on July 19th. If the group get through they will progress onto the televised selection which will be shown on TG4.

Joe Curtin, the youth worker who entered this rap group explained that ”
This is a great opportunity for the young people and for Cork to be
going forward for this event. I’m personally a big fan of
the Eurovision itself, so when I heard about this opportunity I jumped
for it. The song has to be completely sung in Irish so I’m really
impressed with the work the young people have undertaken over such a
small space of time.”

Working and supporting the group on their track is local Cork rapper and
tutor GMC. GMC holds weekly workshops at the Gurranabraher Youth Centre
(The Hut) on Tuesdays and is involved with many other projects throughout
the city. Rapping is just one of the many groups that Youth Work Ireland
cork have to offer the young people of Gurranabraher/Churchfield and city.
