Andrea  Corr

Andrea Jane Corr, the youngest of the siblings, also know as Andy, was born on 17 May 1974. She was brought up in Dundalk, County Louth, in Ireland and now has her very own home in Dublin. She has 2 sisters, Caroline and Sharon, and 1 brother, Jim. Her parent are Gerard (Gerry) and Jean, who recently passed away in November 1999 due to a lung disease. Andrea has brown eyes, black hair and has a height between 1m50 (5'1") and 1m55 (5'2").

Andrea went to the same school as her sisters, the "Dun Lughaigh Convent" and was classed the brainiest of all the siblings. However, she stopped at the age of 16 to join the band. Andrea received 4 honours out of 7 subjects. She learnt German for 3 years and French for 2 years. She intended to go to university after she received multiple honours in her Leaving Certificate results, but opted to join her family and pursue music. Andrea is a voracious reader and her favourite writers are Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Fyodor.

In the band, Andrea is the lead singer, the lyricist and the tin whistle player. When Andrea was young, she was taught classical piano like her siblings. While her siblings were practising piano, she received a tin whistle to keep her quiet.

During free time, Andrea likes walking new places, drinking tea, going out with friends, cooking, reading and talking with friends.

Andrea Corr is very flirty on stage. She really knows how to have fun. On stage, she loves dancing and running around on her sibling's solo. Her favourite musical experience is when playing live for 20,000 people at an open air concert. She is found to be very funny and cheeky and is also known to be a bit dizzy, that is why Jim calls her "Danger Dizzy". Andrea always loses things, for that is the reason why she plays the tin whistle since it's the cheapest instrument. Andrea's worst habit is sucking on her thumb.

In the future, Andrea is looking forward to motherhood. When she decides to have a baby, she would teach her kids instruments where they can get together with her sibling's kids and form a band.
