Description   Maria Christian, Ireland's representative in the 1985 Eurovision Song Contest, with members of the Irish delegation and others in the upstairs lounge/piano bar of the Hotel Gothia, in Gothenburg, Sweden, in early May 1985. Maria was placed sixth with Brendan Graham's song 'Wait Until the Weekend Comes'.

Songwriter Brendan Graham is first left, middle row (wearing tie and dark jacket); his wife Mary is beside him. Journalist Helen Quinn (blonde woman, partly obscured) is beside Mary. Backing singers Pat Reilly (middle of shot, with fair wavy hair) and Rita Madigan (short dark hair, further back and to the left between Brendan Graham and Noel Kelehan) are also in shot.

Deirdre Henchy (RTÉ Public Affairs) may be in the third row (third from right, with glasses on head). Her husband, Daragh Mulvagh, is the bearded man in the middle background.

Noel Kelehan and Larry Gogan are in back row. Dave Pennefeather, from Hawk Records, may be first right in the back row (beside Larry Gogan).
