Eamonn Toal

Eamonn Toal is an Irish singer who graduated from the Bel Canto School of Music in Dublin. In 1990 he momentarily moved to London to pursue his music career before returning to Ireland a few years later.

In 1995 he provided backing vocals for the Irish entry of the contest that year called “Dreamin'” by Eddie Friel. The song broke Ireland three-year winning streak at the contest eventually finishing in 14th place.

Later Eamonn won the right to represent Ireland as the lead artist in the year 2000. He performed his song “Millennium of Love” to commemorate the new millennium and eventually finished in 6th place. His entry was the best result for Ireland since the full introduction of televoting was introduced in 1998 and hasn’t been bettered since.
