Dolores and her classmates receiving special award in 1989

April 1, 2019  |  Comments Off on Dolores and her classmates receiving special award in 1989  |  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.

“In The End” – Paris promo day 2

March 29, 2019  |  Comments Off on “In The End” – Paris promo day 2  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday was the second promo day in Paris for the band. No public event this time!
Mike and Noel (without Fergal who was giving an interview to another media, see below) went to radio station RTL2 for “Le Drive RTL2”.

Then, still without Fergal, they talked to TV channel France 24. We haven’t yet found out if this video has been broadcast already or not, we’ll keep fans updated on this as soon as we shed light on this.
The Cranberries posted 6 photos both on their Facebook and Instagram accounts:

On his side, Fergal gave an interview to Nicky Beckett for Rock Art Fashion (rockartfashion.net), according to Nicky’s Instagram account. The interview should be published soon.

Nicky Beckett and Fergal


UPDATE:

The Cranberries may have recorded another show when they were at RTL2 yesterday. Radio host Stéphanie Renouvin posted this morning on Instagram a photo with Mike and Noel and, according to the hashtags, the show could be “Pop Rock Story”.
Again, we haven’t yet found out if the show was live broadcast or recorded for a later broadcast.

And last, still on Instagram, a photo posted yesterday by Pierre-Edouard Bellanca, who was the band’s interpreter:

The Cranberries were still in Paris today.
At 6.30pm they appeared on radio station RTL2 on the show “Le Drive RTL2”. Noel and Mike were interviewed during 20 minutes. The radio has live webcams in the studio, you can watch the video replay directly on the RTL2’s Facebook.

They also posted 2 photos on Twitter:

 

…and one more on Instagram:

 

The Cranberries also posted 2 photos, different photos, both on their Facebook and Instagram accounts:

 

A few hours before the broadcast, RTL2 posted an advert on their socials (Facebook, Twitter) to announce the event. It was not the exact same artwork, very close though:

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).

A new week of promo: Dublin, Paris

March 27, 2019  |  Comments Off on A new week of promo: Dublin, Paris  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries are back on their promo tour. It started on Monday 25 in Dublin, on RTÉ Radio 1. No more information has leaked yet.

Today, the band was in Paris and gave interviews to the press, including radio station Europe 1 and TV Channel BFMTV, according to the following pics:

On the evening, they attended a Q&A with lucky winners for YouTubeMusic and Oui FM. 60 or so privileged fans got to listen to 3 new songs (Lost, Illusion, Crazy Heart) in an auditorium located 7 Rue Ballu in Paris.

For obvious reasons, mobile phones, cameras and any other kind of recorders were not allowed, and for now the only images of the event that surfaced were posted on the band’s Facebook as well as Noel and Mike’s Instagram accounts. Let’s note the band was not in the room while the audience was listening to the new songs, they only joined the crowd for the Q&A and answered questions for approximately 30 minutes.

Afterwards, fans were invited to a cold buffet and also had the opportunity to take a picture with the boys in front of a huge “In The End” artwork background. A very nice surprise for sure!

Noel wrote on Instagram, “we will be doing a few more of these in the coming weeks”.
From what we know, London and New York City are on the list.

Different promo posters specially made for the event were hanging on the auditorium walls, a few lucky fans got the chance to leave with some of them (thanks to @indo_matt and @misterdine):

The event was videotaped and should be broadcast in April on YouTube.
Special thanks to Laurent at BMG France.
