The Hand wishes a belated birthday to Dolores O’Riordan

September 21, 2016  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan, Other News

These past days The Hand, the very famous cartoonist in The Cranberries world, was very prolific and drew several portraits of Dolores O’Riordan.
Yesterday he published his final work on the Internet as a GIF called “12DoloreS”
followed by a post on his Twitter account today with a message revealing his real intention:

actually and intentionally it was a GIF(t) for her birthday .. but I was late, as usual :/
 

Unfortunately it seems it won’t turn into a new “Calendolores” 😉

As the animation goes quite fast, you may have missed some drawings!
You’ll thus find below all his BRILLIANT sketches extracted from the GIF as well as the images they are related to (as usual click on each picture to see it larger):

A prolific “The Hand” much to our delight

October 22, 2014  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

If you know the work of The Hand you must already know that he is a very prolific cartoonist. As you can judge on his Facebook account and official website he sketched a lot of international and local (Italian) celebrities with his own unique style.
These last months he drew a lot of new portraits of our favorite Dolores. CW already wrote a news about that last august but The Hand continued to draw of lot more after that.

2014.09.06 The Hand

One by one on our Cranberries World Facebook page we shared his works but that is something we don’t really like to do as many people don’t have, don’t like or simply don’t want Facebook. For all those people, here comes a summary of his work!

2 New interviews: Noel Hogan on the radio and The Hand on Cranberriesitalia.it

September 8, 2014  |  Comments Off on 2 New interviews: Noel Hogan on the radio and The Hand on Cranberriesitalia.it  |  by Axl  |  Other News

More media for The Pigtown Fling: as just announced on their Facebook Noel Hogan and Eoin Devereux will be interviewed on Limerick Today on September 9. Interview airs at 11:25am on Limerick’s LIVE95FM

Second thing to mention today is an interesting interview published on Cranberriesitalia.it with the famous cartoonist The Hand well known in the world of The Cranberries and who recently drew new portraits of Dolores and The Cranberries as we reported here. He also posted still on his Facebook this new drawing for Dolores’ birthday.

2014.09.06 The Hand

Quite unfortunately the interview is in Italian (obviously!) so if like most of us you don’t understand a word you can use an internet browser like google chrome and put the address of the page inside and if you have a recent version of chrome a (not so bad) translation in your language may appear. Thanks chrome and thanks to cranberriesitalia.

The Ice Bucket Challenge continues, now The Sage Café feat. Mike

August 24, 2014  |  Comments Off on The Ice Bucket Challenge continues, now The Sage Café feat. Mike  |  by Axl  |  Other News

This time it is Mike Hogan’s turn to appear on an Ice Bucket Challenge video. The video was posted on the Facebook page of The Sage Café. Mike isn’t directly concerned as he is one of the guys pouring the bucket of ice water on others (hey ! he is the boss after all)… and he seems to enjoy it.

Quite funny indeed, but this one is not the direct response to Noel challenging him. So we might have another video with Mike very soon… and this time he will not enjoy it as much as he just did. Stay tuned…

Noel Hogan accepts The Ice Bucket Challenge

August 23, 2014  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

This summer if you live on the same planet earth as us, you probably noticed tons of videos of celebrities or friends pouring a bucket of ice water on their head. This is called the ice bucket challenge and Noel has just agreed to do it and posted the video on his tumblr account. Take a look at it really, it is quite cool and funny especially the way his family reacts.

The Ice Bucket Challenge spread over the internet these last months and kept growing and growing this summer. It all started from an athlete suffering from a degenerative disease combined with a good dose of self-deprecating media from the celebrities. Bill Gates even did it ! The principle is based on having more and more videos all over medias/internet of people doing it to get funds for the ALS association. ALS is for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Those who are nominated have 24 hours to do it and can challenge 3 people of their choice to do the same. If they don’t accept they have to donate $100 to the association. It appears that most of celebrities are doing both. On this day ALS raised more than 60 million dollars.

In turns out that Noel has nominated 3 people of his choice and an interesting name for us, fans, surfaced : Mike Hogan

So who’s gonna challenge Dolores? Noel didn’t… Mike maybe?
Even if there is not much chances that Dolores will do it as she tends to avoid the Internet and everything that revolves around it, it may reach her one way or another. Mike may nominate Russell, Russell may nominate Don and Don… well… we’ll see!
Good cause and good fun!

Your idol is reaching out for help.
Are YOU listening to DOLORES?

PS: To all the loyal Italian fans who might be able to  have a talk with her in the upcoming days, please try not to mention it as it’d be better to let her find out by herself, cheers!

In it together 🙂

A GLOBAL FAN CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT DOLORES

November 25, 2013  |  Comments Off on A GLOBAL FAN CAMPAIGN TO SUPPORT DOLORES  |  by Camille  |  Other News

Dear Cranberries fans,

As a community, we are bound by the same passion towards Dolores O’Riordan because her songs are our inspiration. They have provided the soundtrack to our lives. Through good times and bad they have given us something to hold on to and helped make us stronger people.

Today is the day we have to tell Dolores how much we value this and how important she is to us!

Indeed, many of us were moved by Dolores recent expose in the major Irish newspaper The Sunday Independent where she gave a very intimate interview with the journalist Barry Egan of that paper’s LIFE magazine, revealing she was sexually abused as a child.
Following this publication, numerous fans expressed a desire to show their solidarity, especially as Dolores stated « if I tell my fans that this happened to me and they still love me, that’s going to make me feel good about myself ».
Our idol is reaching out for help. This is therefore the time to tell her that our love is unconditional and will never fade.

To make this happen the Cranberries World team has decided to launch a global support project:

In partnership with the Sunday Independent’s LIFE, we’re going to publish the following half page advert in the magazine on December 15th so as to answer Dolores via the same means she herself used to confess her most intimate secrets. We believe that by acting this way, we will be demonstrating to Dolores how much we love and respect her no matter what has happened in her past.
Please note that we can guarantee Dolores will be provided with a copy of the magazine.

DOLAD

How can you contribute to this project?

First, you can encourage Dolores and express your love by sending your support messages together with your name/username and your country to supportdolores@cranberriesworld.com. Collective messages are also welcome. Please don’t be shy, show her that her revelation will in no way affect our respect or feelings towards her.
We will then publish all of your messages on http://cranberriesworld.com/supportdolores (to be online soon!) in order to show Dolores that fans from all over the world are supporting her.

Secondly, we’re asking help from all of you to finance that advert as we need to raise €2,500 for a half page in LIFE magazine (27x14cm).
We believe this opportunity is unique, and we can only make it happen if we all contribute.
Let’s tell the Irish people and the entire world that The Cranberries fans are passionate and devoted. Let’s show them how strong we are when it comes to supporting the woman who gives us so much.
You can donate via the donations platform FundRazr which accepts secure payments with PayPal, MasterCard, Visa and other cards.

We’ve got less than 3 weeks to act, deadline for messages and fundraising is December 13th!

Thank you to all those who have supported us thus far and those who plan to support us in the near future. We know your support will be of great encouragement to Dolores and help her move forward with her life.
Thank you as well to Mattia Sarzi Madidini who allowed us to use his wonderful picture of Dolores for the ad.
We’d also like to give a big shout out to Barry Egan and Eoin Healy of The Independent for the confidence and trust they have placed in us so that our ambitious project may see the light of day.

Last but not least, spread the word! Tell your Cranberries mates about our campaign!
Let’s make it huge and important, for us and for Dolores.
Let’s keep the love alive.
Thank you.

Dolores has been praised for her courage

November 11, 2013  |  Comments Off on Dolores has been praised for her courage  |  by Jury  |  Other News

The Irish Independent posted a new article today with an interview by Ellen O’Malley-Dunlop, CEO of the Irish Rape Crisis Centre, praising Dolores O’Riordan for her “tremendous courage” in speaking out about the childhood sexual abuse she suffered.

Ms Malley-Dunlop thinks that Dolores’ admission would inspire countless victims to seek help around the country.

She said this in her interview:

“I think she’s shown tremendous courage and great generosity in speaking out, because when people like her talk about the terrible trauma inflicted upon them, it encourages others to come forward.

“It is one of the most horrific crimes in our society and all the things Dolores said – like feeling ashamed, the aftermath of the trauma on her life, the lack of self-worth, the anorexia and the suicidal thoughts – they are all common feelings.

“They are feelings that people have who have not been able to talk about the awful experiences they endured and it is never, ever the victim’s fault, particularly a child victim who is groomed.”
