mingkee, I'm not 100% sure about this but I believe Moya is Maire's mother. I think she has done some background singing on some of Maire's cd's before.

mingkee, it really is Maire. Never heard her called Moya before. Not sure why she goes by this name now. You can check out her new web page here:

Here's the explanation for the name change from the web page.

"This is the web home of my music where you will find news, updates and information of my releases, live appearances, and all the other things which you need to keep in touch with.
Many of you will be asking about my name change from Máire to Moya. The answer is simple. Years of misspelling and mispronunciation have led me to a place where I feel that it will save a lot of confusion to have one concise spelling. I trust that this will be the case and in the period of transition, especially for those of you who have been following me as Máire over the years, continue to enjoy as before but anticipate some great new stuff in the coming months and years" - Moya

after searching
Maire is Moya!
yes, I had hard time to sound Maire, till an Irish taught me how to sound
yes, Moya is more easier to sound, and alike
yes, she's been a beautiful female voice from Clannad (like Karen/Carpenters)
I should have trusted my first sense, Maire=Moya
and get her CD
