Lynn Hilary Leaves Celtic Woman

Lynn Hilary, one the singers with Celtic Woman, has surprised fans by leaving the group just weeks after the group completed their first Australian tour.

Lynn joined Celtic Woman just three years ago. In that time she toured the world and contributed to the sales of millions of Celtic Woman CDs and DVDs.

In a personal statement posted at the Celtic Woman website, Lynn explained the reasons for her decision to leave the group. “I have had the most incredible experience with Celtic Woman,” she said. “I feel so lucky to have had the privilege of being able to call myself a Celtic Woman if only for three short years. However I have grown to miss Ireland and my life there more and more, so I’ve decided to take my leave while the going is good. I will miss all my friends terribly and especially three very special ladies; Mairead Nesbitt, Chloe Agnew and Lisa Kelly, whom after the hectic year we have all had I will now always think of as “Super-Women” as opposed to Celtic Women!! I will never forget the warmth and acceptance that I experienced from them and from the fans on my arrival and on filling such big shoes. Thanks also to the fans for making this whole experience all the more colourful! I also want to take this opportunity to thank the amazing Celtic Woman team behind the scenes, they work so hard and have been integral in making Celtic Woman the fabulous success that is has been and I know will continue to be”.

Celtic Woman was put together in 2004 by Sharon Browne and David Downes (Riverdance) for what was expected to be one performance only. Six years later, they are still going.

The CD and DVD ‘Celtic Woman: Songs From The Heart’ has been in the Top 5 of US World Music chart for most of 2010.

Celtic Woman have also sold more than 1.5 million concert tickets.

A few weeks ago, Lynn, Mairead Nesbitt, Chloe Agnew and Lisa Kelly visited Undercover.

    The enchanting Irish musical ensemble Celtic Woman returns to Australia off the back of a 90 date US tour (even making time for a quick guest role in daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful), for their first Australian tour since 2010 much to the delight of their legion of fans. Returning by popular demand, this will be Celtic Woman’s second Australian tour and they’re excited to bring their new show to our shores “I am so excited to be touring Australia with Celtic Woman this September“ said Celtic Woman member Susan McFadden. “I was in Australia for promo with the girls last year and it was so amazing getting to meet our Australian fans. I can’t wait to perform live in such a beautiful country in such fantastic venues. September can’t get here soon enough!”
