The Irish Women in Harmony have announced their plans to release an album, after wowing viewers on The Late Late Show on Friday night.
A host of Irish female artists came together during the coronavirus lockdown to perform a cover of The Cranberries song Dreams – which helped raise vital funds for Safe Ireland, the leading national organisation responding to domestic violence.
On Friday night, some of the singers, including Una Healy and Erica Cody, appeared on The Late Late Show to perform Dreams – and it received a lot of praise on social media.
Following their performance, RuthAnne Cunningham, who organised the project, revealed their plans to release an album later this year.
She told host Ryan Tubridy: “We’re making an album. This is not the end for the Irish Women in Harmony.”
“So we just want to thank the Irish public for embracing it this summer. It gave us all a lift. We hoped that we helped people out there.”
Ryan then said: “Did you just say you’re making an album?” and RuthAnne replied: “We’re making an album! And it’ll be out this Christmas.”

“Hopefully we’ll be able to be in studios. We’re working on a plan right now where we can maybe have a few of us in studio, socially-distant.”
“There’ll be some originals on it. As Moya [Brennan] says, there’s amazing songwriting, and the girls are playing me their songs. And we need the songs to be heard.”
“And there’ll be a few more covers, from Irish women… perhaps a Christmas single,” she teased.
