Ballyfermot College Of Further Education (BCFE) are celebrating, one of their ‘Rock School’ graduates co-wrote Ireland’s Eurovision entry, ‘Together’.
Mark Caplice, more widely known as “Cappy”, helped pen the track for Eurovision Song Contest finalist Ryan O’Shaughnessy.
Caplic completed the HND in Contemporary Music Performance at BCFE’s Rock School some years ago.
‘Together’ was chosen from over 300 entries by a panel of music industry professionals. It is the first time Ireland has made it to a final since 2013.
Rock School students Claire-Ann Varley (Piano) and Janet Grogan (Vocals) also joined Ryan O’Shaughnessy on stage in Lisbon.
The grand final takes place on Saturday, May 12.
