Wicklow musician wins the Ryanair Gift Card Christmas FM Song Contest 2022

‘A Perfect Christmas’ by Mulled has been announced as the winner of the Ryanair Gift Card Christmas FM Song Contest 2022. The song contest on Ireland’s much-loved Christmas radio station attracts hundreds of entries every year in a bid to find the next festive favourite to sprinkle Christmas cheer all around the country. The winning song will now have the honour of being broadcast across the airwaves to Christmas FM’s Irish and international fans along with the likes of Christmas legends such as Wham, Mariah Carey and Michael Bublé. 

‘A Perfect Christmas’ was composed a few years ago by Clare man David Graham and Wicklow man Eoghan O’Sullivan. The duo have called themselves ‘Mulled’ for this recording.

Speaking about their song, Mulled said:

“‘A Perfect Christmas has been a firm favourite among friends and family for a while now, so we’re both delighted that the Christmas FM listeners chose it as this year’s winner. We think it has all the ingredients of a classic Christmas song, but with an indie-pop feel so we hope it can go on to find a wider audience in the years to come. Big thanks to Gavin Glass at Orphan Recording Studios, who did a great job on the production.”
