Where Are They Now?  

Maxi: After a long career as a singer, Maxi has landed a regular spot as one of RTE radio's most beloved presenters. She presents the morning program on RTE Radio One, Risin' Time from 5:30 to 7:00 a.m. weekdays. She also does many special programs for RTE as well.
Marion Fossett: After the break up of Sheeba, Marion went back to her roots with the circus as her family owned the famous Fossett's Circus in Ireland. She was a regular performer and took over the ringmaster duties when her father, Teddy Fossett, sadly passed away in 1998 at the age of 70. Marion is still with the circus as of 2015. 
Francis Campbell:
Shaun Magee: After leaving Sheeba, Shaun went on to play with The Joe Cuddy Band and finally Vienna (with Dee Mahon, formerly Julie of Starband) before emigrating to Canada in 1985. Today, Shaun lives and works in Toronto where he manages a construction company. We thank him for all his help in putting together this feature.
