Andrea has plans for her post-wedding album

Andrea Corr, as the dogs on the street in Dundalk know by now, is getting married to Brett Desmond very soon.

But what they don't know is that scarcely will the confetti be swept up than the mystic chanteuse will be releasing an album of cover versions produced by no less than U2's producer, the redoubtable Brian Eno.

Behind the mixing console with the world-famous musician will be another producer of renown, John Reynolds. John, who used to be married to that other mystic chanteuse, Sinead O'Connor, has previously produced works by Peter Gabriel, Kirsty MacColl, Bjork, U2 and, of course, Sinead.

How do I know all this exclusive information about Andrea? I bumped into a member of the Corrs' inner circle in Sandycove on Monday evening.

Incidentally, Andrea's sister Sharon Corr will have her own solo album out first, however. If thoughts of sibling rivalry have crossed your smutty brow, dismiss them instantly for the unworthy meanderings they are.
