Limerick locals to organize a “Remember Dolores” podcast

January 4, 2021  |  Comments Off on Limerick locals to organize a “Remember Dolores” podcast  |  by Axl  |  Other News

This year will mark Dolores’ third anniversary as the world still faces the covid pandemic.
In this context, locals won’t be able to pay tribute to Dolores as they’ve now gotten used to on January 15th, mingling with fans travelling from abroad.

The organiser of 2019’s “Piano for Dolores” and 2020’s “In The End” remembrance events in Limerick has therefore partnered once again with the Limerick Arts Office and the Irish Arts Council to release a “Remember Dolores” podcast” on January 15th that will also be broadcast on the local radios.

The idea is to invite international fans and followers of The Cranberries and Dolores to share their memories, stories, poetries or songs and send these audio memories via messenger for these to be featured in the podcast, along with testimonies from local Limerick folks who witnessed the early days of the band.

For those of you who would like to contribute to this podcast, all information can be found on this link.

Dreams Fest 2020 to go live on Facebook this Sunday celebrating Dolores O’Riordan’s birthday

September 4, 2020  |  Comments Off on Dreams Fest 2020 to go live on Facebook this Sunday celebrating Dolores O’Riordan’s birthday  |  by Webmaster  |  Other News

As seen on ilovelimerick.ie today, Limerick county Dreams Fest will take place on Dolores’ birthday as a virtual event this year, live on the Dreams 2020 Facebook page at 1:30pm (Irish Time) this Sunday.

The articles explains that, “the event was filmed previously at King John’s Castle and will feature a host of musicians and familiar Limerick faces who are coming together to celebrate Dolores’ life and legacy. Dreams from the Castle was sparked by Dolores’ brother Brendan with the help of friends and local businesspeople and aims to mark his sister’s birthday through showcasing all Limerick has to offer through art, music and its historical sights. The event features many tributes to the star.”

For the occasion, the festival crew erected on the castle the mural painted in 2018 by Bridget Lambert of Class Art Studio and her 30 students.
Brendan O Riordan commented, “the artwork seems perfectly at home and brings back all the memories of that warm summer it was created.  It’s for Dolores and for all she represents in this world – Love, joy, peace, happiness, music, painting, colour, energy, spirit, vibes, community and inspiration

He added, “the event was small due to restrictions but aimed to give a little hope in these troubled times. We want to see Limerick on the map as the home of one of Ireland’s greatest treasures, my sister, global rockstar and front woman of the Cranberries Dolores O Riordan. Loved by the young, old, city, county, arts, sports she is the common thread that connects so many hearts here and all over the world.”

More photos of the event were already shared yesterday on the Dreams 2020’s Facebook.

We have just learned of the passing of a well known fan from Brazil in the Cranberries community, Elio Maraia Jr., whom we were used to know as Elio O’Riordan Junior.

Elio was the founder of the 1st fanclub in Brazil and former webmaster of “ZombieGuide South America”.
We felt it was important to let fans know as we believe some of our followers may have been closed to him.

Tonight we keep him in our thoughts.
May you rest in peace, Elio, your love for Dolores and the band will forever be remembered.

Koretsky’s new EP “MMXX” out today

July 10, 2020  |  Comments Off on Koretsky’s new EP “MMXX” out today  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Olé Koretsky announced on Twitter and Instagram today the release of his new EP titled “MMXX”.
Stream/download here.

The EP features the track “Heartbreaker” which Cranberries fans are familiar with as Olé used to play it when presenting D.A.R.K. tracks Live PA as opener of The Cranberries on their 2017 tour.

One may thus wonder if the other unreleased tracks Olé played live on this tour will ever be released – and as solo material or D.A.R.K.? Let’s note that some of them featured Dolores’ voice so we could expect them to make it on the second album of D.A.R.K. that was already recorded when Dolores passed away and will hopefully see the light one day.

“MMXX” also includes an interesting cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U”.
Let Olé know what you think of his work!

March 16, 2020  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Nice and very appropriate video with rewritten lyrics shared on Twitter today by Roisin Ingle:

we wish, wish we could return
wishing never had to learn
words like COVID-19
coronavirus you’re so mean
you are tearing us apart
ruining everything

 

and yet though this time is strange
so much to rearrange
we’ll keep washing our hands
all we can do is stand
together while apart
it’s not a game to us
and we’re in so deep
we sacrifice to keep us safe
social distance in our fingers a-a-ah
we don’t want to let it linger
we don’t want to
we don’t want to
we don’t want to let it linger

 

oh from Wuhan to Milan
something really has gone wrong
we’re singing songs
singing songs

 

if we, if at home we stay
close pubs self isolate
socializing at home
call loved ones on the phone
avert your patrick’s day
it’s a tiny price to pay
and we will prevail
we’ll keep our precious people safe
the strong is standing for the weakest
we can make sure it won’t linger
we have to
we have to
we cannot let it linger
