I've always treated the anniversary of Celtic Woman as September 15th, the day they recorded their first PBS special / DVD at the Helix in Dublin in 2004.

Celtic Woman Limited was set up after the DVD recording, on October 5th, 2004. Sources: [1][2]

But I was a little surprised today to hear a few times from Mairead Nesbitt that the actual Celtic Woman anniversary is June 9th. I knew they had recorded the album months prior to the DVD, but that far in advance, on the same day as the birthday of Chloë Agnew and David Downes? I haven't heard that before.

So far, I haven't found evidence to confirm or deny that June 9th is when Celtic Woman actually started. Can anyone confirm?

I'm trying to remember where I had heard this, but...

The initial show was only supposed to be a one-time event.  After the show, someone got the bright idea that maybe this could be a continuing show. 

I've been to 2 shows in Cleveland.  Both times, one of the girls commented that "this was where it all began".  July 20, 2005.  That kind of plays into the CW Limited set up.  Does it take 5 or 6 months to set up a tour, especially from scratch?  Yes.

If you continue on with this same thought, starting rehearsals in June for a July show isn't necessarily unreasonable.

Finally, did they have to wait until Chloe turned 16?  Since they are touring the US, I'm sure there are a bunch of regulations concerning number of hours a "minor" can work, etc.

I don't think they had to wait for her to be a certain age, but they brought a teacher on tour for her during the school months.

 They didn't have to wait at all Chloe started touring when she was 15 but she had a tutor on tour paid for by CW and Lisa K was acting mom.

Something tells me that a 15 year old is limited to the number of hours they can work per day AND I don't think they can work past 7:00 at night.  It's got nothing to do with school.

You would have to remember it was 15 years ago and Chloe would go by Irish law not USA laws. I know she started touring at 15
