To all Cranberries fans, the Limerick Leader just published the poll for the second run of Limerick’s All Time Great !
Dolores is now facing Mick Mackey “the greatest hurler the game ever produced”.
Tough opponent this time, as Hurling is the national sport in Ireland and Limerick people are really into it, especially since Limerick won the All-Ireland Championship last year…
You thus know what you have to do: CLICK HERE to lead Dolores to the semi final!!!
Poll for this second round will close this Friday.
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 9 – 0:30 PM (UTC)
Friday deadline has now past… and the winner is:
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.]

A picture disc vinyl of “In The End” just appeared on Amazon UK.
To be released on 26 April 2019, it is already available for pre-order.
The Limerick Leader has just launched the competition to determine who is “Limerick’s All Time Great“.
Sixteen nominees who have contributed greatly to Limerick’s local life have been selected and the audience is now asked to vote for their favorite in a series of online polls pitting the nominees head-to-head at quarter-final, semi-final and eventually, final stage over the coming weeks.
First run is online, and people are asked to choose between Dolores O’Riordan and 1800s operatic superstar Catherine Hayes – poll will close on Friday morning. Just one click to vote, it’s free.

PS: We’re told a Limerick plaza could be named after her is she was to win… Come on Cranberries fans, you know what you have to do!
