“In The End” just appeared on iTunes revealing tracklist order as well as duration of “All Over Now” (4:16)

10 tracks!!
Let’s note that the track “Crazy Heart” does not feature on the album unlike what we initially thought.

iTunes (France)


It seems iTunes (France and Italy) got the tracklist wrong as all other platforms (including The Cranberries official webstore) announced “Crazy Heart” as track #8 as well as a different tracklist order.

“In The End” album cover + first single “All Over Now” out Jan.15

January 11, 2019  |  12 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Big day today in the Cranberries world, the band just updated their official website as well as all their socials with the cover of their new – and last – studio album “In The End”, along with a long statement to explain the process of the album. No release date has been announced yet, hopefully soon… (possibly Spring 2019)

Also, to mark the first anniversary of Dolores’s passing, they will be releasing the first single “All Over Now” on the 15th of January.

In The End – album cover

You might recognize Noel’s son, Dylan, holding a guitar on the left, where his father is used to standing on stage. Although the other 3 kids are not yet known, we can imagine they are kids from Fergal, Mike and Dolores’ family.

EDIT: The little Emma is indeed the daughter of one of Dolores’ nieces and the name of little boy on the bass is William, son of Tommy O’Carroll and Kay O’Carroll. No more details about his link with Mike yet; family? or friend? or else? new homepage


More about the kids on the cover…

Emma, alias Dolores O’Riordan, is the daughter of Elaine O’Riordan. Elaine is one of Dolores’ nieces and is the little girl with Dolores in the majestic horse and cart on Dolores’ wedding day.

Dylan Hogan, alias Noel Hogan, is Noel’s son. To illustrate, a photo from Noel’s private Instagram account (the one and only time).

24 November 2018 – Father and son, Noel and Dylan Hogan

William O’Carroll, alias Mike Hogan, is Mike’s nephew. Remember the name of Mike’s wife, Siobhan O’Carroll (Thanks to Mat in the comments below). On 18 January 2019, the Meelick National School posted a great photo on Facebook.

In the role of Fergal Lawler, the name of the little boy is still unknown and the only detail that surfaced yet is that he is Fergal’s nephew.

The Cranberries to receive UL Honorary Doctorates on Jan.18th

January 8, 2019  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday The Cranberries posted on Instagram a photo of their invitation to the “Conferring of an Honorary Degree of The University of Limerick on The Cranberries”. The band didn’t give any other info at the time, such as the date of the ceremony nor if this was going be a public event or not…etc.
Some fans then commented it could be an Honorary Doctorate.

The Cranberries’ invitation posted on Instagram

Today more details were given in three articles published online on and  [edit: and even more articles were published during the day]

The ceremony will take place on Friday 18 January to honor all band members. Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler and Mike Hogan will receive honorary doctorates while a posthumous award will be made to the family of the late Dolores O’Riordan.

The University of Limerick awards honorary doctorates to “individuals who have shown outstanding achievement, nationally or internationally, in the arts, sciences, business, industry, the professions, sport, social service or public service.”

It looks like ceremonies at the Limerick University are reserved to invited guests only, and that dress code applies. All details can be found on the “general information for invited guests” page of the UL’s website.

For those who are not invited to attend, the UL ceremonies seem to be live streamed on this link. For now, there’s no information whether the ceremony in which The Cranberries are part will be available for watching or not.

As Ireland just entered 2019 a few minutes ago, The Cranberries official website updated their home page to reveal what should be an artwork linked to the release of their upcoming – and last – album “In The End”, due in 2019.

If the exact release date isn’t known to this date, BMG is likely to release the album in Spring as September/October might be devoted to the 25th anniversary of the No Need To Argue album. home page new artwork

The CW Team would like to use the occasion to send our fellow grieving fans our best wishes, hoping that this new year will bring everyone peace and closure.


Dolores O’Riordan remembered at The Swans Bar in Ballybricken

December 25, 2018  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

The Swans Bar located in Ballybricken, Limerick, Ireland posted yesterday on Facebook a small message to remember “all our loved ones who are no longer with us”… and especially the most iconic one, DoloresWith the message, there is a photo of her performing in the bar. Actually the post includes 2 photos to show the photo hanging on their wall near the Christmas tree.

There is no details about the exact date or even the year. Obviously this was not part of a show nor a showcase nor anything related to Dolores’ job. The bar being located just a few blocks from where most of her family is living, she was probably just singing for local friends and for fun.

Thanks to Dolores O’Riordan Spain for noticing and sharing.

“Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” feat. the late Dolores O’Riordan (UPDATED)

December 23, 2018  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Tomorrow on Irish TV RTÉ One at 6.20pm (Irish time), the series “Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” will include the late Dolores O’Riordan in a Christmas Special. The show dives into the RTÉ archives to rebroadcast some of the very best musical performances over the years.

St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir accompanied by the James Last Orchestra, The Corrs, Colm Wilkinson, Jerry Lee Lewis, the late Dolores O’Riordan and Bring Crosby in conversation with reporter Aine O’Conor in Dublin in 1976 are expected on tomorrow’s show. Monday 24 December 2018. Duration: 60 minutes.

Pat Shortt

Don’t forget to record and share!
And for those outside of Ireland you can watch RTÉ One by clicking this link.


The show rebroadcast a small part of the “Kenny Live” show from December 1993. It was quite easy to guess as that particular “Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” was a Christmas Special and the performance at Kenny Live back in 1993 was recorded a few days before Xmas near a Xmas tree in the TV studio.

Only a small part of the interview and an edited version of Linger were rebroadcast. Unfortunately The Cranberries performance was the very last of the D’Telly show which implies end credits on it 🙁
Also, the image was upscaled to 16:9 instead of the original 4:3 format.

Definitely not the most interesting rebroadcast especially as most of the fans already had the complete appearance in pretty good quality. A small improvement though!
And for those who don’t have it, the original version is still available on YouTube:
