She may have gone solo but Sharon Corr hasn't ruled out a Corrs reunion.

The Dundalk native is currently promoting her new album, The Same Sun, but has said that while they've no plans at the minute, The Corrs could get back together.

"I don't know what will happen in the future, we've made no plans," she said.

"The Corrs have no plans to do any gigs but I'm sure it would be a lovely thing if we did in the future."

The mother-of-two said that the family band are still so grateful for their resounding success.

In their heyday, The Corrs were nominated for two Grammys, their third album - In Blue - went to number one in 17 countries and they were awarded honorary MBE's for their contribution to music and charity.

"For us a lot of it is about appreciating what we did do and what we did achieve because it was huge," Sharon told the Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk.

"We had global success all over the world and there's a little part of us that doesn't want to push that - we want to be grateful for that.

"Someone said to me that we could be cryogenically frozen which I thought was very appropriate because we could come back looking the same way," she laughed.

When asked about a possible comeback tour in the future, Sharon said she knows the fans want it but it won't be happening soon.

"I know people want us back and I need to be on stage all the time but I'm completely fulfilled by my solo career at the moment," she said. "I want to take it further, there will be more albums and more tours but I never say never so we shall see."

Sharon also spoke of how it was quite a transition from being in a band with her siblings to going solo.

"For me, going solo was a gut instinct.

"I didn't make a formal decision to do it," she said. "We came off the road in 2004 and the one thing I decided to do was to keep writing.

"It was a bit of a transition for me to become a solo artist," she confessed.

"I was a bit naive about how it would feel for me to inhabit that role.

I didn't really question it and then it wasn't as seamless as I thought it might be," she added.
