Song: Angel Eyes
This year I entered the Rose of Longford selection which took place in The Longford Arms Hotel. As part of the selection it was up to each girl if they wanted to do a talent and I decided to sing a song I wrote about my friend who passed away.
On July 02 2005, Sarah Murtagh passed away as the result of a car accident. As a way of coping, and to help all of our friends, I wrote this song. I called it Angel Eyes as those who knew her know she had the biggest, most beautiful eyes.
Entering the Longford Rose Selection was something which I never would have imagined I would do. Having been away from home from a few months, I was literally back in the country around 72 hours when I entered, I felt like I had something to offer. For the first time in my life I felt as if I had something to give back to others and this was a platform to do it.
This song is one which means a lot to me as it is so personal.
