Eddie Friel was responsible for preventing Ireland from winning five times in a row but it is also the proof that winning or losing on Eurovision is not a synonym for success. He has toured with Van Morrison as a piano player and features extensively on Van Morrison's album Hymns to the Silence.
In 2012 he released his only album, My Old Cufflinks but in the internet we can find his performances in Innsbruck where he proves the great pianist he is. Two years ago, he collaborated with Rino (IO) DJ.
