Dolores and her classmates receiving special award in 1989

April 1, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Instagram user joanna.cran.pic posted a very rare clipping of the Limerick Leader published on 24 April 1989. Dolores and her classmates won “Slógadh ’89” (an Irish nation wide arts festival for young people) and received a special award, “An Gradam”. It was 30 years ago!!!


More about Slógadh
In 1969, Gael Linn established a competition based youth arts festival, Slógadh, involving several local events and culminating in a national final. This event was to prove one of the great successes of the Gael Linn calendar for many years. Activities included singing, storytelling and the visual arts.

The Slógadh music competitions catered for all kinds of music – traditional, pop, country ‘n’ western, classical, solo singing, choirs, musicals and solo instrumental. There were competitions for one act plays, miming and the traditional art form – the agallamh beirte. The festival was not limited to stage competitions. There were important art and literary sections also. The side events were often as important as the competitions themselves. Impromptu music sessions, discos, céilithe and poetry readings formed an integral and important part of the festival.

Above all else, Slógadh gave Irish a new relevance for the young generation. It became a living medium of modern artistic expression. At its zenith in the early eighties, over 50,000 young people were involved annually one way or another. It was through Slógadh that artists such as Clannad, the Hothouse Flowers, Altan and Dolores O’Riordan first gained recognition. It was in Slógadh that Cathal Ó Searcaigh, one of the most promising and prolific of our contemporary poets, came to the attention of the literary public. No other youth festival of its kind in Europe, with the exception of the Urdd Eistedfodd in Wales, could compare to it in scale or in the scope of its activities. Young people from the four corners of Europe – from Wales, Scotland, Brittany, Flanders, Occitania and Slovenia, to mention but some-traveled to Ireland to experience it.

Dolores’ class photo at Laurel Hill Secondary School

March 28, 2019  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

A very rare pic was posted on Instagram by user joanna.cran.pic
This is the class photo of Dolores in Laurel Hill Secondary School in Limerick. Our friends from Cranberries Italia saw the pic in the school when they visited Limerick last year and said it was taken in 1990.
If so, do the math, Dolores was 18 (maybe 19).

Two centuries of Limerick music history brought to book

October 26, 2018  |  Comments Off on Two centuries of Limerick music history brought to book  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Paddy Brennan, a Limerick Historian and rock ‘n’ roll fanatic, just published a 556-page book regarding the History of Limerick Music from 1800 to 2018 including memorabilia and rare photographs.

The book has an extensive section on The Cranberries.
Author said: “Other bands were writing about love and songs that wouldn’t stand out whereas the Cranberries were writing songs where you would actually start listening to the words.”

The book called “Limerick Music Throughout The Decades” will be available for purchase on October 30.

A preview of our ‘Cranberries Mystery Tour’

September 12, 2018  |  1 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Other News

Last week, just ahead of what would have marked Dolores O’Riordan’s birthday – and sadly, the date that was also chosen by the coroner to make the inquest public – we encouraged everyone to remember and celebrate the beautiful talent that she was by focusing on the music, sharing memories and spreading love.

Alan Martin, who we can fairly describe as the first ever Cranberries fan, took us at our words!
While some members of our team were in Limerick city to pay tribute to Dolores, Alan offered to treat us to a “Cranberries Mystery Tour” that would lead us to different venues where the band performed in their early days, schools they had attended as pupils, and Churches where they got married.

Most of the photos we took during this special tour will enable us to illustrate the concerts pages that represent the shows that they played during the 1990s. However, only a very few of these places are still standing today as they did back then.

During this tour, we were escorted to:

– The Flag Café (first ever show, 18 November 1989, TCSU with Niall Quinn – now closed and walled)

– The Crescent Hall

– The Glentworth (today’s Pery’s hotel)

– The Theatre Royal (closed)

– The Jetland Center (now a shopping center)

– People’s Park (where ‘Lark in the Park’ took place)

– The Parkway

– The Two Mile Inn

– The Speakeasy (today’s Texas Steak Out)

– The Empire Records shop where the band launched their debut album (today’s Centra shop)

– The Savoy, Top Floor (now entirely rebuilt)

– The Cruise’s Royal Hotel (first ever show with Dolores on 14 July 1990, the building is now gone)

But that wasn’t all!
We were honored to be welcomed at the Moyross ‘Corpus Christi Primary School’ where the very talented choir (who had sung earlier this year at Thomond Park for the Munster game, as well as on RTÉ One ahead of the All Ireland final) performed “Dreams” for us!!!

What a beautiful reminder of the impact of the band’s music on the upcoming generations, proving that music will, without a doubt, be the legacy that Dolores has left for all time.

Here’s our video to share this incredible and very emotional experience with Cranberries fans from all over the world :

Corpus Christi Choir Moyross – “Dreams”

Last, we were privileged to be joined by Professor Eoin Devereux at Limerick University, where he teaches, to learn more on the History of the band and visit some more places that are still full of memories:

– The Stables Club

– The University of Limerick room where ‘Treaty 300’ took place

– The Irish Chamber Orchestra

We’ve truly been touched by the hospitality we received in Limerick, and we treasure those lovely moments that we were privileged to share with everyone there. It is our sincere hope that by sharing this small review of our trip, fans throughout the world will feel the love the Limerick people have for the beautiful soul that Dolores undeniably was.

We would like to extend a very warm THANK YOU to Alan Martin, the Moyross Corpus Christi Choir, and Professor Eoin Devereux for filling our hearts with so much history and beautiful memories at a most needed time.
