A weird piece of news to wake up with this morning as we find out in the Irish Press (Irish Independent & Limerick Leader) that Dolores O’Riordan is about to launch court action against Noel Hogan.
According to these articles, the “cause of action in the filing is listed as a ‘declaration'” but no other detail has been given as the singer, her spokesperson and Noel Hogan remain quiet about the matter.
This, of course, is quite unexpected as The Cranberries have been stating since their reunion tour in 2009 that they’ve always been in good terms, and that both Dolores and Noel had even kept writing for each other during the band’s hiatus.
Let’s hope for more news to understand what’s happening and see if that can affect the future of the band as this is quite worrying and shocking for us, fans.
Let’s also note that both articles seem to be repeating the content of a press release without clearly understanding what’s at stake as they’re using the same exact terms.
