* TemporarySubstitute: Early 2011, the lads did a promotion tour around Australia and PBS stations around America. At the time, Damian [=McGinty=] was supposedly grounded until he improved his grades and finished his studies. Now it's believed to be a cover story to explain Damian's sudden absence due to ''TheGleeProject''. Though Paul's resignation had been effective as of the end of the 2010 tour, he stepped in and did the publicity. When performing, either Emmet or Neil took on Damian's parts. This past July, the group booked two weeks of shows in Atlantic City. When Ryan Kelly was injured and unable to perform, Colm Keegan stepped in at the last minute to replace him. Sharon Browne's blogs indicate that Ryan is aiming to go on the 2012 Tour and have made no further mention of Colm's future with the group. Now averted as Colm is part of the Fall 2012 North American Tour.

'''Damian [=McGinty=]''': From Derry, Northern Ireland. Joined Celtic Thunder at the age of 14. Went from singing pop songs like "Puppy Love" to songs like "Home" as his voice lowered. In 2011, he participated in the first season of ''TheGleeProject'' and eventually won along with Samuel Larsen. He played Rory on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' during Season 3, causing him to resign from the group.

Formed in 2007 by producer Sharon Browne, Celtic Thunder is an all male ensemble comprised generally of five members. (The number has fluctuated a bit over the years and currently sits at five.) Their first show was performed at the Helix in Dublin and sold as a DVD. The show was aired on PBS and all subsequent productions have done so, usually around St. Patrick's Day or during pledge drives. The music varies from traditional Irish music to folk songs to contemporary. One show, "It's Entertainment," focused more on pop hits. Until 2011, composer Phil Coulter was the musical director for the group and often composed original pieces for the group or its members to perform. They are incredibly popular in North America, with a larger following than people may suspect. They have constantly topped the World Billboard Charts.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Pretty much Ryan's entire onstage persona. In "Storm," both the Gypsy King's Sister and the Noblewoman are drawn to the Highwayman (Keith) for this reason. The Noblewoman even sings about it. [[spoiler: Averted in the end as the Noblewoman ends up with the Landowner's Son (Paul)]]

Sharon Browne's blogs indicate that Ryan is aiming to go on the 2012 Tour and have made no further mention of Colm's future with the group. Now averted as Colm is part of the Fall 2012 North American Tour.
