Dolores O’Riordan To Receive Posthumous Honour From UL

Band members of The Cranberries Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawlor with honorary doctorates will be in attendance on Friday, January 18, with a special award also to be made to the family of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan.

 

Local musician Mark O’Connor has teamed up with fan Stefania Bardi, Mayor James Collins and the council’s arts office for ‘Piano for Dolores’, he said; 

We are giving a space for remembering her. We want people to bring your memories, bring your poems, bring your songs. Original things you have written about her. We appreciate it’s still difficult for the family. It’s our way of saying that we are still thinking of her,

There will be a book of memories, and a portrait of her in Ormston House, with a piano the focal point.

There are plans to live stream the event with musical performances throughout the day to pay tribute to the late singer and show that 'Limerick is still thinking of Dolores'.

Sheila Deegan, Culture and Arts Officer with Limerick City and County Council, said;

Dolores O’Riordan touched the hearts of so many people, and this was shown by the thousands of people who signed the book of condolence and turned out to pay their respects when we heard of the tragic news last year. This event on Tuesday is a way for people to remember the great musician in a very personal way. Ormston House will be open from 12 noon to allow you to come a reflect and remember in whatever way you wish. Limerick City and County Council is delighted to be supporting this event. Dolores’ mother Eileen and family have been informed about the event and are happy it is taking place. We are speaking with them about how best to continue to honour Dolores’ memory.
