Poor Nicky Byrne. It can't be easy going to Europe with the hopes and dreams of a nation on your shoulders as well as the baggage of your country's seven previous wins but let's be honest, he was never going to do well and possibly the only person who seemed to think he might was Marty Whelan.

There were a lot of feelings amongst the Irish population last night as Nicky Byrne's 'Sunlight' failed to qualify for the final of Eurovision 2016, most of them outrage and disgust that Europe could do this to us after everything we've given them. If you ask us, we should just stop giving them all our delicious butter and then see how they like it.

But look, at least Nicky got to meet Graham Norton. That's nice.
