The Corrs Unplugged is an album by Irish band The Corrs, released in 1999. The album is part of MTV's Unplugged series. It was released internationally but for a short time was not available in the United States until later. The song "No Frontiers" was sung by Sharon and Caroline, with Jim playing the piano. It is a cover of the Mary Black song, written by Jimmy MacCarthy.

This session was recorded live on October 5, 1999 (1999-10-05) in front of an audience at Ardmore Studios, Co. Wicklow, Ireland, and was released on CD, DVD, VCD and VHS. The CD release features the songs in a somewhat different order to in which they were actually performed as two songs were omitted from the track list and are only featured as bonus tracks on some releases. The DVD and VHS retains the original song order and are also mostly unedited, while the CD edits out almost all of the talking between songs.
