Roy Taylor, who represented Ireland in the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease last year. Next month is National Awareness Month for Motor Neurone Disease, and Mr Taylor says he would love to speak to the Minister for Health Simon Harris about the disease.

83pc of The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association’s income comes from fundraising events. I’d love to meet Simon Harris, not to berate him, but to discuss some ideas, to get and give advice... and it won’t cost him any money, unlike the children’s hospital,” Mr Taylor jokes.
