When You Need Me was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1999, performed in English by The Mullans.

The song is a ballad, sung from the perspective of a woman whose lover has ended their relationship. She explains that she realises that they had not connected ("But the fool that I am/Never tried to understand") and pleads with him for another chance, promising that "When you need me I'll be there".

The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following Portugal's Rui Bandeira with Como Tudo Começou and preceding Austria's Bobbie Singer with Reflection). At the close of voting, it had received 17 points, placing 18th in a field of 23. Considering Ireland's proud record of 4 wins in the early to mid 1990s, this was quite a turnaround.

It was succeeded as Irish representative at the 2000 Contest by Eamonn Toal with Millennium Of Love.
