  • After briefly using the name Polar Bear and losing Morrison as a member, the band became Snow Patrol in 1997 and added Quinn to its line-up
  • Their first three records, the EP Starfighter Pilot (1997), and the studio albums Songs for Polarbears (1998) and When It's All Over We Still Have to Clear Up (2001), were commercially unsuccessful and were released by the independent labels Electric Honey and Jeepster

  • Connolly joined Snow Patrol in 2002, and after their major label debut, Final Straw, the following year, the group rose to national fame
  • The album was certified 5× platinum in the UK and eventually sold over 3 million copies worldwide
  • Their next studio album, Eyes Open (2006), and its hit single, "Chasing Cars", propelled the band to greater international fame
  • The album topped the UK Albums Chart and was the best-selling British album of the year, selling over 6 million copies worldwide
