Two days ago the Catholic Voluntary Secondary School for girls Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ based in Limerick published on Facebook a photo of a bench they unveiled last week as a tribute to their former pupil Dolores O’ Riordan.

Our Comhairle na nDaltaí unveiled a bench in memory of our past pupil Dolores O’Riordan last week. It is placed in our 6th year garden with lyrics of her music to provide inspiration for years to come. Míle buíochas for such a beautiful and fitting tribute.

The bench features three lines in Gaeilge and English: a quote from the song “Ordinary Day” along with Dolores O’ Riordan’s name written in Irish as the school is a school where Irish is the medium of instruction.

1971 DOLORES NI RIORDAIN 2018
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF ALONG THE WAY
LIVING THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF YOUR DREAMS

We do not know yet whether the bench is in a private space reserved for students or if it’s accessible to all who’d like to come and visit. A great tribute, for sure!

    This is really a sweet gesture and remembrance.

    I’ve been listening to their entire discography the past 3 weeks on my long trips, and still feel no less sentimental, especially when you hear her young strong voice in EEIDWCW, though I still feel slightly sad hearing how jarringly different it turned by Roses.

    Nonetheless, what gift you had, Dolores. And what a gift you have been and continue to be. You will always be missed. I hope her kids and mother are coping well.

    All happened so fast. Really wondering how all her family are doing……especially Taylor, Molly and Dakota….what Taylor is doing? is he studying at University or what?

    We will never know.
