    A much more detailed list of the Irish Eurovision entries' chart performance (and those of all other countries, even non-winners, that charted in Ireland) was posted here:

    https://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=34596

    - although it has not yet been updated to cover the last three years. When it was prepared, it was checked very thoroughly to ensure it was fully correct.

    I haven't cross-checked any further items on this newly-posted list, but I can immediately see one major error and one omission:

    He should be right at the bottom of the list, peak position 48.

    Even the 1999 entry, omitted above, went higher:

    So only two Irish Eurovision entries never charted in Ireland:

    2001 GARY O'SHAUGHNESSY - WITHOUT YOUR LOVE

    and the last-placed entry of 2007 - which was disqualified from the charts as it was given away as a free download only.
