Yesterday, Fergal Lawler was interviewed on the “Dave Fanning” show on the Irish radio RTÉ 2fm. He obviously mainly talked about the Zombie’s one billionth view, however near the end, fans got a first glimpse of what will be on the NNTA 25th Anniversary boxset.

Fergal mentioned that there would be things for the hard-core fans, things like demos the band did in New York before the album was recorded, some radio station stuff, acoustic versions of the tracks and live versions, but there was no mention of when it will be released.

The Hogans great great grandfather

April 15, 2020  |  4 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Here’s an interesting discovery we wanted to share:
As some of our team members were browsing old Irish 90s papers, we found out in a 1993 Limerick Leader article that Noel & Mike happen to be the great great grandsons of Michael Hogan, a poet known as “The Bard Of Thomond” in the 1800s.

Some of you might already have heard about this as, in 1999, Noel & Mike helped to reissue the poems and songs of their ancestor, according to an Irish Times article.

But our discovery did not stop there! As we read more about The Bard Of Thomond, we realized that a life-size statue of the Hogan’s great great grandfather is actually to be found at King Johns Castle Plaza in Limerick, that is to say… right in front of Dolores’ mural painted in 2019 by Aches!

When the tribute to a Hogan family member meets the tribute to a O’Riordan family member… destiny!!!
