Later, she would contribute vocals to his 2002 debut album O (which sold something like two million copies worldwide) and his 2006 sophomore album 9.
She also performed a solo set at the 2006 Electric Picnic festival in County Laois, Ireland.
On March 26, 2007, Damien Rice summarily fired Hannigan from his band with no warning nor explanation just as they were about to go on stage in Munich, Germany.
But now Gary, 30, is blissfully in love with 26-year-old Lisa who he has known for years.
The pair only began dating when they appeared together at the Meteor Music Awards in March.
