The former Eurovision star one Ireland Roy Taylor died after a battle with motor neuron disease.

The musician's family confirmed the sad news through a post published on the social media pages of his humanitarian organization. "Watch Your Back MND" (Watch Your Back MND).

He became famous when his band "Jump the Gun" (Jump the Gun) participated in Eurovision in 1988 years and placed on eighth place.

Roy has been open about his battle with motor neurone disease (MND) and has released numerous singles to raise funds for research into the condition.

Motor neuron disease (MND) is a rare condition that slowly damages parts of the nervous system, leading to weakness and eventually complete muscle dysfunction.

"It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our father and hero Roy Taylor. Through his infectious positivity over the past few years, he has accomplished so much in the fight against MND… An amazing father and an amazing person and an amazing musician,” his children wrote.
