RTÉ shared the very first TV appearance of The Corrs, broadcast 26 years ago this weekend

God bless the RTÉ Archives.

THE RTÉ ARCHIVES is a consistent source of nostalgic joy.

Every day they trawl through old footage and dig out some absolute gems – like a 10-year-old Saoirse Ronan in the drama Proof and, of course, Pint Baby.

Recently, they shared a clip from November 3, 1991 – the first time The Corrs appeared on RTÉ

Playing a show called Eye on the Music, The Corrs performed their song Mystery of You

The Archive notes:

This song was never officially released as a single.

But the band is there fully formed – with Andrea on lead vocals and Sharon on violin

You can watch the full performance on the RTÉ archive, and here’s a little clip of the chorus to give you a taster

It was 26 years ago this weekend – as Eye on the Music went out on a Sunday night

Apart from The Corrs, it was a pretty Commitments-heavy line-up that night featuring Andrew Strong and The Black Velvet Band – with Maria Doyle Kennedy as its lead singer.

The Corrs would go on to bigger things – but this is where it all began.
