Singer Ryan O'Shaughnessy achieved Ireland’s best Eurovision result in seven years when he sang “Together”.

But Israeli singer Netta was eventually crowned the winner in last night’s tense finale.

She received a total of 529 points for her performance of ‘Toy’ during the Grand Final at the Altice Arena hall, taking the crown for Israel for the fourth time.
