A puppet will represent Ireland in this year’s Eurovision song contest, TV viewers decided last night.

Children’s favourite Dustin The Turkey was plucked out as the best of six finalists, sparking a mixture of cheers and booing at the decision.

They decided the cult figure’s performance of ‘Irelande Douze Pointe’ – a parody of Eurovision – would be the one to ruffle some feathers at the song contest in May.

Dustin, one of Ireland’s leading stars since he joined ‘The Den’ with fellow puppets Zig and Zag in the 1990, swept all before him when he performed live.

The bird is no stranger to being in the limelight having recorded six albums and performed a host of comical duets with artists such as Bob Geldof, Chris De Burgh, Ronnie Drew, Dervla Kirwan and the late Joe Dolan.

After a number of years in the wilderness, Dustin The Turkey said he has decided to return to the recording studio in an effort to restore Ireland’s position as the high kings Of Eurovision.

Darren Smith and Simon Fine – composed the track with Dustin – previously collaborated on ‘Crazy Turkey’ from Dustin’s bestselling album ‘Bling When Your Minging’.
