Dolores O’Riordan inducted in the Limerick Hall Of Fame

February 21, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Dolores O’Riordan was inducted in the Limerick Hall Of Fame during the “Limerick Person of the Year 2018” gala award ceremony that was held at the Clayton Hotel in Limerick this afternoon.

The “Limerick Person of the Year 2018” appears to be a different event from the “Limerick’s All Time Great” competition that Dolores O’Riordan won by a massive margin just a few days ago.
This gala award aims at honoring an individual or group of individuals who best exemplified the spirit of Limerick in 2018, so today, Limerick Hurlers were named “Limerick Persons of the Year 2018” and members of the team received the award.

Members of Dolores’ family also took part in the ceremony as details of a new Limerick Hall of Fame that is being established were also announced during the event, with the late Cranberries lead singer being the first inductee. Dolores’ mother Eileen was also presented with a special framed Limerick Leader newspaper article to mark the announcement according to the article posted after the ceremony.

Limerick Leader’s journalist Áine Fitzgerald posted a few photos of the ceremony on Twitter this afternoon, including a pic of the Hurlers with Dolores’ family, giving the song “Dreams” was the anthem of the team:

Tweet #1 – Dolores inducted in the LHOF

Tweet #2 – Limerick Hurlers

Tweet #3 – with Mayor James Collins and Dolores’ family, Eileen, PJ, Sandra O’Riordan

Tweet #4 – Special framed LL newspaper article

LISTEN/DOWNLOAD: “5 New Songs” rare CD (2004)

February 3, 2019  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

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.]

Download WAV audio files (and CD scans) on Google Drive or listen to the songs directly on YouTube.

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.


UPDATE

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:

“Angela’s Song” long version now available (UPDATED)

December 1, 2018  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Thanks to YouTube user Alfonso MartzG who shared the long version (2:30) of “Angela’s Song”. The guy does not mention the source but the animated short film was released yesterday on Netflix so…

Rest with me
We’ll be warm and free to dream
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

Stay with me
Forget the cold streets of Limerick city
Let’s drift away and sing our song
And dream on and on

Lay with me
Let us sing a sweet melody
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one


UPDATE – 4:55 PM (UTC)

Source is indeed Netflix. Compared to the RTÉ’s broadcast in 2017, the end credits are now scrolling slowly and we can hear the full version of the song (or more likely, this is the normal speed and RTÉ had deliberately broadcast a speed up version). Anyway this is a Netflix exclusive!
