The CDs were brought by one of the husbands of one the female members of The Corrs.


Three CDs by The Corrs were given to Nelson Mandela: 1) Forgiven, Not Forgotten 2) Borrowed heaven 3) Home.
All are signed and all were brought by the husband of one of the female members of the Corrs. That man came with Niall Melon, a businessman from Ireland, who came to visit Nelson Mandela in May 2007.

"Dear Madiba,

I hope you are keeping well. It has been a great pleasure to meet you and play for you over the past few years, espcially when you got up and danced to our Irish jig in the galway(?)!

Take Care.
Hope to see you again soon,
Lots of love
