After a long time the police (the Garda Síochána) did arrest and imprison this stalker.

    E3. I can’t find the lyrics/translation of a certain song in the discography, help!

    The discography is complete, and has all songs and lyrics of Enya. If a song has no lyrics listed, it is either an instrumental song or a song with vocalizations instead of lyrics. Enya often uses this kind of “nonsense language” to enhance the music. These vocalizations are not words, hence there are no lyrics.

    The Enya discography lists every song that Enya has written, sung, or performed; look under the “tracks” section for a complete listing. Please be aware that several sites and P2Ps offer ILLEGAL downloads, which often wrongly attribute songs to Enya. For example, Now We Are Free, Gladiator Theme, Harry’s Game, and Love Song are often wrongly listed as Enya's music.

The song Boadicea was adapted and used, in three other artist's songs: Ready or Not by The Fugees; I Don’t Wanna Know by Mario Winans and You Should Really Know” by Pirates. The Fugees used the song without official permission. The case was almost taken to court, but Enya decided to make a personal agreement with The Fugees. Please note that Enya did not collaborate with these artists; they merely bought the rights to use a selection of Enya’s music. As the music is not Enya, these songs are NOT listed in the official discography. Related questions:

    J2. When will the next album be released?

    We have been told that Eithne, Nicky and Roma went into the studio in 2003 to begin work on the new album. A release date for the new album is not yet known. Official announcements about the release of the new album will be posted online by Enya.com, and will also be made officially by Aigle Music and Warner Music UK. Other sources may not be taken as official (including Warner Affiliates that are NOT Warner Music UK).

    J3. I heard something happened to Enya! Is this true?

    A few years ago a rumor was spread that Enya might have died in a car accident. This is NOT true. There was a minor accident, and she was mildly injured, treated and released from hosptial on the same day. Please, be careful with what you choose to read and believe from sources found on the internet. If something were ever to happen to Eithne, Nicky, Roma, or someone at Aigle or Warner would let us know. The only official source for such information is Enya.com.
