Yesterday, Councillor Michael Sheahan Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, along with Limerick Culture and Arts Office, Limerick City and County Council, made presentations to the recipients of a number of recently awarded bursaries. Among them, Emma Langford received the Dolores O’Riordan Music Bursary Award 2019 in the presence of members of Dolores’ family (Dolores’ mother Eileen, Dolores’ brother PJ and his wife).

Photos of the presentations were posted today on the Facebook account of the Limerick Arts Department:

To mark the occasion, Emma invited musicians and Limerick artists touched by Dolores’ legacy to join her after the ceremony for a photo at the new Dolores mural. She posted 2 pics later on the evening on her socials (Twitter, Facebook):

The €4,000 bursary will provide funding to cover ongoing production for Emma’s second album, and contribute to the costs of a music video for her recently released single, “The Winding Way Down to Kells Bay”. Congrats Emma!

November 13, 2019  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

It looks like the album “Something Else” will be reissued on black vinyl on the 22 November 2019. However it’s quite difficult to know the exact release date as many websites are not all saying the same. Some are announcing the 22 November 2019 as a pre-order or release date:

HHV (Germany): Pre-order, 22.11.2019
Vinyl Digital: Date of delivery, 22.11.2019
Bilbo (Belgium): Release date, 22 November 2019
Ginza (Sweden): Release date, 22.11.2019

When a few others are announcing the 29 May 2020:

Rough Trade (UK): Release date, 29/05/20
Saturn (Germany): Release date, 29.05.20
Amazon (Germany): Release date, 29 May 2020

There is even one eBay seller announcing the release for the 29 November 2019.

So who is right?
