The Cranberries are mentioned in the part concerning Ber Angley, who is synonymous with events at University of Limerick since the 1980s:

Professor Eoin Devereux spoke about Ber’s achievements.
“He had the capacity to imagine and dream and say ‘why can’t we do things like this?’.”
Ber also played a part in getting Limerick’s most successful music export signed to a major label. He played a very significant role in the history of the band, booking them for The Stables Bar and rostered them on national tours of the colleges in their early days.
Ber booked The Cranberries for a Rag Week gig at The Jetland on Ennis Road. (where Dunnes Stores / Woodies is now).
Prof Devereux told the audience, “There were 32 A&R men from the record industry hoping to sign The Cranberries.
At that gig a man called Denny Cordell of Island Records made a deal with The Cranberries. It was a historic night in the history of the band that went to global success.”
