Shane Steven Filan is a member of the Irish pop band Westlife. Filan is one of the four (formerly five) original Westlife members, along with other current members Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Nicky Byrne. Before Westlife, Kian Egan and Mark Feehily were with Shane in a band known as I.O.U. with other Sligonians Derek Lacey, Graham Keighron and Michael "Miggles" Garrett. He is married to Gillian Walsh (kian's cousin)
He grew up in Sligo, a large town in the northwest of Ireland. He was born on July 5, 1979 to Peter and Mae Filan. He is the youngest of seven children. He has three brothers and three sisters: Finbarr, Peter Jr, Yvonne, Liam, Denise and Mairead. His parents owned a diner in Sligo named Carlton Cafe located on Castle Street and Shane used to work there as a waiter from a very early age. When Peter and Mae decided to close the cafe in 2003, Shane bought it back and turned it into a Morgan clothes shop for Gillian who runs the business. She also has another clothes shop, Anna-Rose, with her sister. Shane is a big fan of Michael Jackson and taught himself how to moonwalk. He attended Summerhill College, a Catholic school, with Kian Egan and Mark Feehily. All three of them participated in a school production of Grease when they were about 12. The Hawkswell Theatre became a significant part of their careers. Shane likes to play golf in his spare time, but loves horses much more. He and his family own over 70 of them, and used to compete at horse tournaments. All of Shane's horses are named Carlton something(e.g. Carlton Flight, Carlton Clover).He also bought Gillian a dark brown horse named Sylvester.
Shane Filan is together with Mark Feehily the main lead singer (first voice) in Westlife. He has also cowritten a few songs, along with the other band members, including:
"Bop Bop Baby" (Became a hit single and made it into #5 in U.K. singles charts)
"I Wanna Grow Old With You"
"Don't Say It's Too Late"
"How Does It Feel"
"Reason For Living"
"Miss You When I'm Dreaming"
He used to write songs for other artists (together with his former bandmate, Brian McFadden)
"Listen Girl" sung by John Ostberg
"Let Me Be The One" sung by Simon Casey (the song written by only Shane himself)
"Sei Parte Ormai Di Me" sung by Il Divo
Shane married his childhood sweetheart, Gillian Walsh (Kian's cousin), on Sunday December 28, 2003 at Ballintubber Abbey. Followed by a lavish reception at Ashford Catle, Ireland.
Shane's wife Gillian gave birth to their first child on July 23, 2005, a daughter whom they named Nicole Rose Filan. Nicole weighed 5lbs 7ozs and was born at Sligo General Hospital (the same weight as her father when he was born).
Shane's usual hairstyle is spiky, but in the videos for "Tonight" and the songs from the "Allow Us To Be Frank" album he changed it.
He and his eldest brother, Finbarr, have a company called Shafin Developments Ltd.. They are hoping to expand its portfolio with the proposed construction of 63 luxury apartments at the rear of Lisroyan House, Knappagh Road, Sligo.
He is a massive Manchester United fan. He and bandmate Nicky Byrne proudly wore their Man Utd scarfs as they were half time guests at Old Trafford for the game between United and Bolton Wanderers on 17/03/07.
"I'm young, free and single. So if there's anyone out there! Seriously it is very hard to have girlfriends as we are away so much - that's the reality of it and it's going to be worse before it gets better." (Shane on having girlfriends in the business).
"I felt weird - I was dead paranoid about it. I thought, 'Is everyone staring at me, is it obvious?'" (Shane on having to wear make-up).
"I used to have a toy cat called Kitty. It wasn't a pink cat but it wasn't a black cat either if you know what I mean. It was something a girl would definitely have had. I'd hide him under the bed when my friends came round."
