Here today, gone tomorrow - The Duskeys

The Irish family pop group The Duskeys represented Ireland at the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest. Formed after the break-up of Sandy Kelly's (real name Philomena Ellis) touring showband The Fairways, she recruited her sister Barbara Ellis and Welsh cousin Nina Duskey. In 1980, they released their debut single, 'Don't feel like dancing'. In 1981 they competed in the Irish national finals for the 1981 Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Where does that love come from' under the name The Duskey Sisters. They finished in third place.

A year later, they tried again and recruited a male member in the shape of Nina's brother, Dan Duskey. Their song 'Here today gone tomorrow' won the national finals, and so they competed on the Eurovision stage. They ended up in eleventh place. The song was heavily reworked for its single release and became a hit on the Irish charts, reaching number 12.
