“Wake Me When It’s Over” out today, March 19th

March 19, 2019  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Last week, the Limerick Leader announced that the second single “Wake Me When It’s Over” would be released on March 18th, which turned out not to be exact as the song was not available as expected at midnight that day.

As fans were waiting, a “Coming soon…” teaser was posted on The Cranberries socials (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) in the afternoon Monday 18th, which confirmed that the release was imminent. The (unknown back then) featured quote turned out to be taken from the very first lines of the song:

Later in the day, still Monday, a link from Japan (thanks to Ex-cranfan) revealed more information, including the official release date, March 19th, and the artwork/cover of the single in HQ.

However, as midnight was coming in every part of the world, the song was still not available on digital platforms (but leaked on a Russian website). Fans had to wait another post from the band on their socials (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) this morning Tuesday 19th, announcing an exclusive first play at midday on the Jeremy Vine show on BBC Radio 2, exactly like it happened in January for the release of the first single, “All Over Now”.

EDIT – 2:00 pm (UTC)
The Jeremy Vine show is now just over and “Wake Me When It’s Over” appeared on digital platforms… “In The End” didn’t, still looks ready to play though, so it might be coming soon, however there is no information about that for now!

EDIT – 3:15 pm (UTC)
The song is now available on YouTube (both full and edit versions):

“Wake Me When It’s Over” and “In The End” available on Monday

March 16, 2019  |  25 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries recently revealed in a few interviews (watch Radio Regenbogen video for instance) that the songs “Wake Me When It’s Over” and “In The End” will be released very soon, and “Wake Me When It’s Over” will be the 2nd single.

“Wake Me When It’s Over” will be released next Monday (18 March), as revealed last week by the Limerick Leader, probably starting at midnight on streaming platforms and to download.

However, it seems that the song “In The End” will/could also be released on the same date, as both songs have just appeared today on iTunes/Apple Music and are almost ready to play… and even if not yet working, we can see both durations.

“In The End” pre-release songs on iTunes

Let’s note that just like “The Pressure”, the song “In The End” should be another pre-release track the band wants to share and not a 3rd or 4th single.

Dolores O’Riordan inducted in the Limerick Hall Of Fame

February 21, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Dolores O’Riordan was inducted in the Limerick Hall Of Fame during the “Limerick Person of the Year 2018” gala award ceremony that was held at the Clayton Hotel in Limerick this afternoon.

The “Limerick Person of the Year 2018” appears to be a different event from the “Limerick’s All Time Great” competition that Dolores O’Riordan won by a massive margin just a few days ago.
This gala award aims at honoring an individual or group of individuals who best exemplified the spirit of Limerick in 2018, so today, Limerick Hurlers were named “Limerick Persons of the Year 2018” and members of the team received the award.

Members of Dolores’ family also took part in the ceremony as details of a new Limerick Hall of Fame that is being established were also announced during the event, with the late Cranberries lead singer being the first inductee. Dolores’ mother Eileen was also presented with a special framed Limerick Leader newspaper article to mark the announcement according to the article posted after the ceremony.

Limerick Leader’s journalist Áine Fitzgerald posted a few photos of the ceremony on Twitter this afternoon, including a pic of the Hurlers with Dolores’ family, giving the song “Dreams” was the anthem of the team:

Tweet #1 – Dolores inducted in the LHOF

Tweet #2 – Limerick Hurlers

Tweet #3 – with Mayor James Collins and Dolores’ family, Eileen, PJ, Sandra O’Riordan

Tweet #4 – Special framed LL newspaper article

Special thanks to Elena Legaspi for the link!

Limerick’s All Time Great: DOLORES WINS (UPDATED)

February 18, 2019  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Title says it all. Dolores wins easily. Congratulations!
Thanks to The Cranberries community and all the others who voted for her. Well deserved.
The Limerick Leader should say more about it pretty soon…


The Limerick Leader just published an article to confirm Dolores O’Riordan has been named “Limerick’s All Time Great”.

They commented:
Dolores is an exceptionally worthy winner of Limerick’s All Time Great,” said Eugene Phelan, editor of the Limerick Leader. “She is an iconic figure in world music but never forget her Limerick roots and her love for her native place. We are proud that she has been named the All Time Great after an exceptionally popular series of online polls. All 16 candidates would have made for a worthy winner, but there can only be one!

Limerick’s All Time Great poll: FINAL VOTE!!!

Here we go lads!

Dolores made it to the final run of the Limerick’s All Time Great poll launched earlier this month by the Limerick Leader.

From eight polls featuring 16 contestants and two first rounds of voting, four nominees are now facing each other for this final vote: John Kiely, Paul O’Connell, Richard Harris and our beloved Dolores O’Riordan.

This is the last time we’re asking you for your help to lead Dolores to the victory:


The vote will run until next Monday, 1pm (Irish time)

Make sure Limerick people know how loved she was and still is throughout the globe!
