Philomena who fronted the Dawnbreakers was Philomena
Maguire from Irvinestown, Co. Fermanagh, (married name now Quinn and still
living with her husband Gerry and family in Irvinestown). That photograph
was taken in 1967 in Forthill Park, Enniskillen! Philomena married Gerry
Quinn who played sax and vocals firstly with The Trenniers, then with The
Claxton, also Brian Coll and the Buckaroos.
Philomena and Gerry are parents of Sinead Quinn who in 2002
came second in BBC TVís FameAcademy. Sinead now lives in St Albanís with
her husband Paul Stewart who is drummer with top UK band The Feeling.
Sinead now has reinvented The Dawnbreakers and if you Google Sinead and
the Dawnbreakers youíll get some of what sheís up to.
