They have a reputation for being home to some of Irelands finest vocal talents, Hosier being one of many to have begun their singing career there.

One very well known Irish singer would often call on the group when he had high profile guests for dinner at his house, world leaders and such, and would specifically ask for Eabha to attend.
Following a year or so travelling to far flung corners of the world undertaking humanitarian work, she had just begun working on a solo album when in early 2015 she got the call to join Celtic Woman. Since then she has recorded five albums, filmed three television specials and performed concerts with them in over 20 countries across 6 continents.
2020 will finally see the release of her solo material featuring self-penned original compositions that she cannot wait to share with the world.
For someone with such a unique talent, the upcoming album will be sure to stand out there on its own.
