Maureen has been singing with her sisters since she was nine years old. Together they became one of Europe's first successful girl bands, with phenomenal record sales worldwide, particularly in Japan where they sold more records than The Beatles! They have worked with some of the world's most respected artists including the legendary Frank Sinatra. The Nolans put an entire generation "In The Mood For Dancing!". 

The Nolans line up changed many times throughout the decades but there was one constant - Maureen who never left the group until they disbanded in 2005. The original girl group reunited in 2009 with a new album, DVD and a sell-out UK tour backed by industry giants Universal and Live Nation with some venues selling out within hours.

Maureen is a familiar face in musical theatre, and has received plaudits from critics and audience members alike. Maureen is a very accomplished actress and has played Mrs. Johnstone in Blood Brothers in the West End and on tour for several years. She was the fourth of The Nolan Sisters to play the part, earning them entry in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2007. 

Maureen has also toured the UK playing Sadie in the comedy musical 'Girl�s Behind', Jill in 'Mum�s The Word', as Vi in 'Footloose' and Sarah in the hit stage play 'The Naked Truth' in which she had to pole dance! Maureen has also appeared in 'Stardust - A musical flashback in time' in 2007 and 'The Eva Cassidy Story- Over the Rainbow' in 2011. Maureen returned to 'Mum's The Word' in 2008 playing opposite her late & very much missed sister Bernie, 4 years after her first UK tour in the show.

Maureen is a veteran of 20 pantomimes and has even appeared alongside two of her other sisters (Anne and Linda) in past Christmas shows! In 2011, she starred in the world premiere of the new musical version of Peter Pan at the Canal theatre in Dublin and reprised the leading role of Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers on the 2013 UK tour.

Maureen loves to have her family around her when she's not working and she lives in Blackpool with her husband Ritchie. Married in 2010 at La Env�a, Almeria in Spain after more than 20 years together, they have a son, Danny and two beautiful grandchildren.
