Dolores O'Riordan - Linger (Live at True Music on HDNet)streaming
There were touching scenes in recent days as thousands queued through the rain to mourn one of the best musical talents this country has has ever produced. The year-old's appeal was so great that one Cranberries superfan spent his life savings travelling from Mexico to pay respects to the late singer. Hundreds who packed into a small church in rural Co Limerick to say farewell to the musician were told she is now singing in a heavenly choir. Cranberries fans from around the world tuned into a local Limerick radio station on Tuesday morning as it broadcast the service live. A picture of Our Lady of Dolours, after whom Dolores was named, was placed at the altar, as was a book of poetry. She also knew that talents were given by almighty God to be used generously for the benefit of others. For that we sincerely thank her from our hearts.
Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan once said she she was 'not going to live that long' and would be happy if she reached The Irish rockstar, whose death aged 46 in a London hotel this week was today described by police as 'not suspicious', had battled depression throughout her career and attempted to take her own life in In deeply personal interviews with her friend, journalist Barry Egan, in she told of her fears that she wouldn't live into old age. She said she had to tell herself to slow down and not to feel guilty, adding: 'Because I am not going to live that long. I'm If I see 50, I'll be happy.
In an article posted on its website, the BBC noted the Linger singer from a humble Limerick background grew up as the youngest of seven children in her family, and had written songs since the age of Patched in with a series of glowing tributes from international celebrities is a catalogue of the troubles which afflicted the talented vocalist through the latter years of her life in particular, including well-documented struggles with mental illness. She was the sole writer of the noisier, angrier Zombie , a response to an Irish Republican Army terrorist bombing in But boys could just sit there and be brilliant for sitting there and being boys. It makes you that little bit more forward. I was singing, always.

The incendiaries had been placed inside cast iron bins, so as to inflict extensive shrapnel damage. As the IRA had planned, many of those fleeing the first bomb ran straight into the path of the second. Her band The Cranberries were midway through their biggest UK tour to date and, as the bombs went off in Warrington, were counting down to a gig at the 1, capacity Portsmouth Pyramids Centre.
Their music was all pervasive in the 90s. In a way, it bookmarked the struggle for peace here like no other band at the time. Many of us first listened to The Cranberries on a cassette and Walkman like I did, gradually moving on to CDs on the Hi-Fis in bedrooms across the land. They made it big just before digital technology disrupted the need to physically go and buy their music in a shop. They sold 40 million of those albums and have hundreds of millions of views of their videos on YouTube. Their music surrounded us here whether we were actively listening or not. This was coupled with the sad pictures of funerals or political meetings outside Downing Street following these events with Linger being played over the top.
When Dolores O'Riordan dropped a bomb: the inside story of The Cranberries' incendiary hit Zombie
There was one particular interview in when she showed up with a guitar and treated me to a personal acoustic version of Zombie as I sat five feet away. On that occasion, she was bubbly, effusive and so charming and fun that I wanted to take her home to my home. She was also very forthright about her battles with mental illness.
