Anna Kearney takes the stage again for Ireland with ‘Banshee’ Thomas Hanses
Irish artist Anna has taken the stage in Gliwice-Silesia for the second time. She will perform 12th in the live show on Sunday 24 November.

Dressed in a flowing tule dress, Banshee singer Anna Kearney delivered a strong second rehearsal on stage in Gliwice on day 3 in Poland. The banshee, she explains, "is an Irish mythological spirit which is said to appear when someone we know is close to death, in my song she is a symbol of our worst fears and adversity. We all have to face the Banshee from time to time and with courage and help from those who love us we can rise above. Love conquers all!"
