December 4, 2007 - Major Updates
The songbook contest winner was announced and a new contest is already begun. Enter at celticwoman.com to be one of five winners of a set of signed Christmas CD and DVD.
The CW site has also undergone a Christmas change as are we. Time to get into that Christmas spirit!
Spring 2008's dates have been announced and can be seen at celticwoman.com as well. They are the final dates, it has been said that none will be added due to Celtic Woman's engagement "outside of the US" in the summer. *ooohs and ahhhs*
The tour in Japan is now over. Hopefully the girls are having lots of fun back home already.
Meav's tour of NY and NH starts next week, as does Deirdre's Canada tour. More Deirdre dates are being announced for her "If You're Irish" tour next year with more to come.

October 13th, 2007 Pt. 3 - Update on Lisa
I just read that Lisa hopes to rejoin us on "some stage of the Spring 2008 tour." Perhaps she will come in later, then.
Also, she says she hopes to work on her NEW CD!!!! while she is relaxing. Can't wait to hear more news about that!
October 13th, 2007 Pt 2. - Congratulations Lisa!
We were recently told the exciting news -- Lisa and Scott are expecting their third child due in March! Congratulations to you both! Our blessings go with you!

The first concert of the Fall 2007 tour in the US by the CW girls was today in Estero Florida. This was also Lynn's debut performance with the gang but it was reported that she did a fine job besides a few nerves, quite understandable.

August 17th, 2007 (Pt 1) - Meav Leaves Celtic Woman
Yesterday we Celtic Woman fans were greeted by the devastating news that our favorite Meav has chosen to leave Celtic Woman to pursue in full her solo career.
"After long consideration I have decided
to take a full-time break from touring with Celtic Woman to focus on
my solo career. I understand the disappointment this may cause my fans
and I promise to see you again soon in my own live show . . . You will see me at Christmas in the Celtic
Woman special to be broadcast on PBS and around the world. You will
also hear me next year when I release my new solo album which is a dream
I need to follow. I hope you will follow the dream with me."
Read her full letter here http://www.meav.com/home.htm
July 30, 2007 - Hayley Live on RTE Radio
RTE Radio, the same radio station that brought us Celtic Woman live at the Point, has aired a two-part recording of Hayley live in Dublin. You can listen to it here. http://www.rte.ie/radio1/inconcert/1098414.html

June 24, 2007 - A few notices
The European tour will begin on September 22nd in Manchester, UK. Tickets are on sale now for all venues.
Also, heads up - the Christmas DVD will be filmed in Dublin July 17th and 18th and released along with the CD in October.
I emailed Celtic Woman Ltd. regarding solo albums and the upcoming book. They called it a "music book" and said that the finalised contents of it would be posted at a later date. It was also reported that the girls intend to work on solo albums but due to their busy schedule nothing is confirmed.
Last but not least, I was informed that they will indeed be back for another tour in 2008. Whether Hayley is there or not is anyone's guess at this point.
June 14, 2007 - New Tour Diary Entry
Check out the new tour diary entry from Celtic Woman, "West Coast Cooler". http://www.celticwoman.com/diary.asp You have to scroll down a little to get to it.
"Even nearer to San Francisco, we played Oakland, beside the Bay Bridge. We’re not quite sure, but we reckon we saw some of the legendary Hell’s Angels at our performance here. It’s great that even tough bikers like rousing numbers like ‘You raise me up’ and ‘Nella Fantasia’. Our music is made for everyone and we hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do."
June 11, 2007 - Celtic Man and Hayley video
Sharon Browne, a creator and producer of Celtic Woman, has left CW to start on her new project - Celtic Man, a stage and television show almost identical to Celtic Woman. She has teamed up with Phil Coulter.
Also, a Hayley video has been added to iTunes. It's apparently a medley of Shenandoah, One Fine Day, and E Pari Ra. You can buy it for $1.99.
