    Actually, Enya is one of nine children. She has four brothers and four sisters. Maire (not Marie) is one of them, her oldest sister. . Maire's nickname is Moya. She is the lead singer of the group Clannad. Enya sang with them at one time.

    Here is some biographical information about her and her family:

    Full name: Eithne Patricia Ní Bhraonáin

    Born: 1961, 17 May - Gaoth Dobhair - Irish Rebublic

    Elder siblings: Máire, Ciarán, Pól, Deirdre, Leon

    Younger siblings: Bartley, Olive and Bridin

    Enya was born in Gweedore, County Donegal, in Ireland in 1961 to a musical family, the fourth youngest of nine children. Her grandparents were in a band that played throughout Ireland, her father was the leader of the Slieve Foy Band before opening a pub, and her mother played in a dance band and later taught music at the Gweedore Comprehensive School. Enya has four brothers and four sisters, several of whom formed the band An Clann As Dobhair in 1968. They renamed the band Clannad in the 1970s.

    In 1980, Enya joined Clannad, the band composed of her siblings Máire (Moya), Pól, and Ciarán and twin uncles Noel and Padraig Duggan. Enya played the keyboard and provided backing vocals on their albums Crann Úll (1980) and Fuaim (1982). In 1982, shortly before Clannad became famous for "Theme From Harry's Game," producer and manager Nicky Ryan left the group and Enya joined him to start her own solo career.
