National final [ edit ]
The Irish National final was held on Sunday 1 March, three weeks later than planned owing to a technicians' strike at the national broadcaster. It was broadcast live from the RTÉ studios in
Dublin on RTÉ Television, and hosted by Brendan O'Reilly. Eight songs competed for the honour of representing Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 1970 being held in Amsterdam. The winning song was decided by 10 regional juries throughout Ireland.
