Bettystown resident and Aslan guitarist Billy McGuinness is a mentor in this year's Eurosong Irish song contest for Eurovision. He is mentoring Laura O'Neill, a music teacher in Dundalk, who'll be performing on the Late Late Show tomorrow night.

Laura O'Neill was born in Dublin in 1989. Her passion for music began at the young age of seven when she joined Ireland's top performing arts school, NPAS. At the age of 10 Laura graduated to solo vocalist, and has performed in some of Ireland's most illustrious venues including The Olympia Theatre, National Concert Hall, and Cork Opera House.

After spending 10 years as a student in NPAS, Laura honed and defined her skills as a vocalist. At the age of 17 Laura was promoted to vocal trainer and choral producer where she remained for six years. During her spell with NPAS she spent three years in Cork studying Performing Arts.

In 2011 Laura competed in the UK's top Talent Show X Factor. Laura made it to the X Factor's boot-camp that year. Laura describes that experience as “an emotional roller coaster from start to finish, but an experience she learnt a lot from and will remember forever”.

Laura currently fronts corporate and wedding band The Firm. She is currently working on her Debut EP which is planned for release in spring 2014.
