January 23, 2018  |  8 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Day 2…

Hundreds of people arrived at Cross’s Funeral Home, Ballyneety, near the star’s Ballybricken home, to pay their respects to the Cranberries lead singer.

The three remaining members of The Cranberries – Mike and Noel Hogan, and Fergal Lawlor – joined O’Riordan’s mother, Eileen, and her five brothers and sister at the funeral home.

The singer’s partner, Ole Koretsky, who also played with O’Riordan in the alt-rock band D.A.R.K., was present.

The singer was laid out in an open coffin with rosary beads around her hands, next to photographs of her meeting the late Pope John Paul II and of her performing with her bandmates.

Family and close friends of Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan accompanied her to her home town church in Co Limerick on Monday night ahead of her funeral.

Candles lit the streets as her coffin was brought to the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken.

Two hearses, one carrying her coffin and another carrying floral tributes, arrived at the church shortly before 9.30pm.

Among the many wreaths was one from Irish pop group The Corrs.

Earlier, hundreds of people had gathered outside Cross’s Funeral Home in Ballyneety where her remains were in repose.

Irish President Michael D Higgins paid his sympathies to the singer’s family and signed a book of condolence.

After signing one of four books of condolences outside the village funeral home, President Higgins spent fifteen minutes inside privately talking to O’Riordan’s loved ones.

Afterwards, paying tribute to the adored songbird, he said: “I think it’s very important to pay tribute to the contribution Dolores made, and I also wanted to meet her mother Eileen and her fabulous huge family of nephews and nieces who were very important to her.”

“It’s so profoundly sad that someone so young is taken from us, but it’s equally important also to pay tribute to (her) work and music. It is also to the incredible credit of all those who have appreciated the music and the songs and the performances and the band, that they have come out in such numbers to make their tribute. It’s so appropriate and it is generous, and I hope that her family will get all the support hey need.”

“Limerick is very very proud of (her). As her teachers have been saying, she was a star that shun bright from the very beginning, and I wish her peace. Our sympathies go out to her mother Eileen and her family.”

Dolores O’ Riordan public reposal at Saint Joseph’s Church

January 22, 2018  |  9 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

We’re lacking words to describe what we wish we had never seen.
Here’s a few articles describing the first day of mourning :

Thousands of people attended the public reposing of rockstar Dolores O’Riordan in her native Limerick on Sunday

The singer – holding a pair of pearl rosary beads – lay in an open coffin inside St Joseph’s Church in the city. […]
In a tribute normally reserved for Presidents, Popes, and heads of State, O’Riordan’s remains lay in an open coffin in a four-hour public reposing at St Joseph’s Church, in the Treaty City.

O’Riordan’s mother Eileen and her six siblings accompanied her dark wooden coffin into St Joseph’s Church, which was decorated with white roses, photographs of the deeply religious star performing on stage, and of her two separate meetings with the late Pope John Paul II at the Vatican.

Bishop of Limerick Brendan Leahy said: “It was very moving to be here, to see the generosity of Dolores’ mother Eileen and other family members, not alone in providing this opportunity ahead of the funeral for the public to pay their respects, but for being there also.”

Link : https://www.rte.ie/news/2018/0121/934847-dolores-o-riordan/

 Bishop Leahy said: “In blessing the remains of Dolores O’Riordan here in St. Joseph’s Church in Limerick today, I am conscious that, while millions across the world have been shocked by the sad news of her death, today is Limerick’s public moment to bid farewell.

“We come to offer a heartfelt greeting to a deeply loved and cherished daughter of Limerick, a talented representative of the potential of Limerick people and a convinced advocate of living life in truth, love and peace.

“As we file pass her coffin, let’s remember God’s love and mercy and pray for her, her family and those she loved and helped in life.

“Dolores appreciated the value of spirituality in our lives. She made her First Communion in this church and was confirmed here. She attended the nearby An Mhodh Scoil (Model School) and Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ school. Her spiritual journey continued in many parts of our world, and yet Dolores remained anchored in Limerick. We can be grateful to Dolores’ family for choosing this beautiful church as a venue for her lying in repose.

“Today as the Limerick people she greatly loved come to pay their respects, let us pray for Dolores: ‘May the angels lead you into paradise; and take you to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem, where there will be no more tears, no more death or pain, for the time of heavenly singing has come’.”

Some of the singer’s greatest hits played out in the church while mourners, stood in silence and remembered her in their own personal way.

Others, who were inconsolable in their grief, wept and hugged one another

A floral tribute left next to the singer’s coffin, from her Cranberries bandmates – brothers Noel and Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawlor – read: “The song has ended, but the memories linger on.”

Her voice filled the building, her band’s songs softly playing in the background throughout the service, as a floral tribute beside the open coffin read: “The song has ended, but the memories linger on.” Along the walls, photos of O’Riordan were placed, including one of the singer posing with the Pope. Four books of condolence were also open for mourners to sign.

LAID out in an open casket with the motif of Our Lady at the Foot of the Cross carved into the oak at either end, a set of pearl rosary beads are threaded through the fingers of iconic rock star Dolores O’Riordan as she lies in repose at St Joseph’s Church in Limerick city this Sunday.

The body of the 46-year-old mother-of-three arrived in a hearse at the church on O’Connell Avenue at 12.10 under grey clouds.

“It’s very sad. The coffin is open – I’m not sure if people were expecting that and she looks so tiny – very peaceful, at rest,” comments Sheila Deegan, ‎Arts and Culture Officer, ‎Limerick City and County Council, on the steps of the church.

Undertakers from Cross’s Funeral Home stand vigil around red ropes which keep mourners a respectful distance from the remains of the global superstar who hailed from the small townland of Ballybricken.

Even death can’t dim the superstar quality of Dolores. A black glittery top peeps out from behind the frills of the casket’s shroud. Dark eyeshadow matches her raven hair. In front of the altar mourners bow their heads. Some say a prayer, some beat their breast, many a tear is shed.

Her coffin was carried inside accompanied by her mother and family members.

Friends and relatives carried white roses as they entered the Church.

At 1pm her mother Eileen and her six siblings left the church after spending an hour with mourners.

Mourners said silent prayers in front of the open coffin, with many shedding tears as they said their goodbyes. Others visibly broke down as the left the church.

Mourners from all over the world also gathered to pay their respects.
