Oldie but goldie!
This is a very rare CD-R containing demo/early versions of songs that would appear on “AYL?”
Some fans might not have heard them all before… and for the others it’s probably been a while!
Let’s note that the demo version of “Without You” never really surfaced before and the title “Apple Of My Life” on this CD-R became “Apple Of My Eye” on the “Are You Listening?” album. [EDIT: Fox Music probably made this CD-R to pass on to various music supervisors. Seems like a title transcribed too fast, just a mistake, as Dolores sings “eye” in this demo.]

A picture disc vinyl of “In The End” just appeared on Amazon UK.
To be released on 26 April 2019, it is already available for pre-order.
As you know the ceremony was live streamed on the UL website yesterday, the University also shared great photos live on their socials, as seen on Instagram
Here’s the short video they posted online:
Media covered the event early in the evening (click on each image below to read their articles directly on their websites):
The Cranberries of course appeared on yesterday evening’s Irish TV news (Virgin Media and RTE):
“I know that she’s happy & in heaven” – the words of Dolores O’Riordan’s mum Eileen, who accepted a posthumous award for her daughter from @UL. @EricGClarke has this report: pic.twitter.com/2uK46LcX40

…and this morning in the Irish papers with many more articles. The band even featured on the front page of a few newspapers:
Yesterday The Cranberries were presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters. Fergal was unable to attend and his doctorate was accepted on his behalf by Mike. The mother of Dolores, Eileen O’Riordan, was presented with a posthumous Honorary Doctorate of Letters for Dolores O’Riordan.
Congratulations to the new Doctors!
