Both Limerick Leader and Hot Press have recently spoken of the “I Heart Cranberries” tribute event due to take place at Dolans, Limerick on July 5th in aid of Adapt House and Limerick mental health service.
More than 20 artists are to be announced in the upcoming days, but Hot Press has already revealed some of them: “Gráinne Hunt, The Brad Pitt Light Orchestra, Jane Fraser, Niamh Farrell, Roisin El Cherif, Anne Rynne and Susie Q to name but a handful“
Singer and songwriter Emma Langfort, who’s organising the event, explained to Limerick Leader:
“When Dolores died, everyone was shocked and saddened and we all wanted to do something to pay tribute to her”
“I thought it would be fantastic to hold a massive event that pulled people together from all over the country and that also gave people a chance to come from elsewhere in the world to visit Dolores’ hometown. “
“I dropped Noel Hogan (Dolores’ Craberries bandmate) a message and asked if there was a cause that was close to her heart and he said a mental health organistion would have meant a lot to her.”
