The Corrs are reuniting, so here are 13 times they were utterly ICONIC

O M G.

ARE YOU SITTING down? You may need to sit down.

The Corrs have announced that they will play their first gig in 10 years this September.

Speaking to BBC Radio 2 yesterday, Andrea Corr said that the group were also working on a new album.

*hyperventilates into paper bag*

In light of the news, we have compiled a list of times they were absolutely iconic.

You’re welcome, Ireland.

1. When they came together to remind Ireland of the importance of sharing in this RTÉ ad

Back when we were carefree and had nothing like the recession or Irish Water to be worrying about.

Excellent scowling here.

Truly a different time.

2. When Andrea Corr wore this pseudo-Asian get up

WHERE ARE THESE HANDPRINTS NOW?

WE SIMPLY MUST KNOW.

4. This powerful singing from the Runaway video

Notice all the baby cans of Pepsi dotted around the studio.

6. Every single time Sharon Corr picked up a fiddle and was instantly transformed into a Celtic queen

A black tin whistle.

This is why she’s a Corr and you’re not.

8. When Prince Charles spoke intimately in Andrea’s ear
