THE Village Pump, Rathangan has organised a special Eurovision final party this Saturday to support Jedward, who spent their childhood in the town.

The twin’s energetic performance wowed the Dusseldorf audience on Thursday night, May 12 with their rendition of “Lipstick” incorporating spiralling cartwheels and spiral kicks. The pub owners are delighted the boys have got through to the semi-final.

“It’s great to see them doing so well and we wish them the best of luck in the final,” said proprietor Una Donohoe, who was speaking on behalf of the family. The pub will screen the final live and everyone is welcome to come along and support Jedward. The boy’s father, John still has a house in the town and the boys went to Scoil Bhride before they went on to attend Rathangan Boy’s National School.
