The Daily Telegraph – 5 April 2019
On 2 May 2019, An Post (Ireland’s leading supplier of postal services) will release a set of 4 stamps that celebrate 4 iconic and internationally recognized songs, performed by renowned Irish artists. The special collection is called “Great Irish Songs” and feature:
Regarding The Cranberries, 3 versions are available: the single stamp (€1.00), a Dreams sheetlet (€16.00) and a collector pack of 4 stamp discs (€17.00), all designed by Amp Visual.
Nice that they’re putting The Cranberries on an Irish stamp, shame they got the lyrics wrong!!!
Thanks to The Cranberries Newspaper for the info!
UPDATE – 5 APRIL
UPDATE – 8 MAY
The set of stamps has been delayed (very likely due to The Cranberries lyrics error) and the new date of issue is tomorrow, 9 May 2019. For the occasion the official “The Collector” (pdf) has been updated and lyrics are now correct!
The set of stamps is valid for both international (U2 + John McCormack) and national (The Cranberries + Luke Kelly) postage, see different face values.
The Cranberries were in Milano today to promote “In The End”. There was a press conference at BMG Italy and the lads were also interviewed by radio station Virgin Radio. Here’s below the first pictures posted on socials, thanks to The Cranberries on Facebook, The Cranberries Newspaper on Facebook, Noel Hogan on Instagram and Alberto Muraro on Instagram.
Professor Eoin Devereux will be presenting “Waltzing Back – an illustrated lecture on The Cranberries 1989-1993” at The Odeon in Dublin on 9 May 2019. A welcome reception will begin at 6pm followed by Prof Devereux’s lecture, Q&A and networking opportunity.

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.
The band announced yesterday that every upcoming Tuesday, they will be releasing a new series of ‘track by track’ videos where you can hear them explain each track from “In The End” in their own words.
First video was published along with this announcement, where they talk about the latest released song “Wake Me When It’s Over” – Album Track #3
Next exclusive video on Tuesday!
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
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:
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).
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.
The event was videotaped and should be broadcast in April on YouTube.
Special thanks to Laurent at BMG France.

UPDATE – MARCH 22
The Cranberries posted a message on Facebook regarding the OUI FM contest. It seems it is intended for French IPs only:
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):
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.
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.
The information was revealed by the Limerick Leader, “Wake Me When It’s Over” should be the next single off the album “In The End”. Read their article directly on limerickleader.ie or click image below to open pdf file.
Let’s note that “Wake Me When It’s Over” should be the 2nd single as the song “The Pressure” released on March 1st was not the second single but just a pre-release track the band wanted to share (see the news update that includes Noel’s words about it).
“The Pressure” should be the 2nd single off the album “In The End” (track #10) and should be officially released tomorrow (March 1st) starting at midnight on streaming platforms.
Well… right now, it’s already tomorrow in Australia, the song has started to spread the internet (so it’s not a leak) and lyrics have already appeared on genius.com
EDIT: Now midnight in most European cities, March 1st, “The Pressure” just appeared on streaming platforms, Deezer, Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music etc…
Also available on YouTube (US viewers may have to wait until midnight tho):
UPDATE – MARCH 1 – 08:00 AM (UTC)
Noel Hogan just posted on Instagram to inform that “The Pressure” is NOT the second single but a new track they “wanted to share”.
Second single should thus be “Wake Me When It’s Over” as stated in the Radio Regenbogen interview posted yesterday on YouTube.
He also replied to 1tipsy that All Over Now’s video should be available next week.
Unfortunately the guys don’t give any details like name of the shows in which they appear and/or broadcast dates. Anyway, thanks to The Cranberries Newspaper on Facebook, here below the video of their interview for Radio Regenbogen posted on YouTube by RegenbogenDE:

Inside the article, a fake poster and a very rare never seen before flyer and artwork from “The Cranbery Saw Us” (Cranbery misspelled with only one ‘R’) at The Oasis Club in Limerick on 23 February 1990.
The band has arrived last night in Berlin for the second stop of their “In The End” promo tour. They just posted 2 photos on their Instagram Stories from the Soho House Berlin where they are giving interviews today:
Post will be updated if more info are released or more photos shared.
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 26
Radiopersonality/DJ/Journalist Caramel Mafia from Berlin posted on Instagram a photo with the lads:

“Classic Tracks: The Cranberries Linger”, a 5-page article/interview with Stephen Street including lots of facts about the song and the recording sessions.
Thanks to The Cranberries Newspaper on Facebook for the info and the photos below:
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!
The band just posted a pic on their Instagram page from their label offices, BMG UK, a moment ago, announcing that they are on promo day in London today.
From what our team was told, they should be promoting “In The End” in other European capitals in the upcoming days/months, as well as America.
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…
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 19
The Limerick Leader just published an article to confirm Dolores O’Riordan has been named “Limerick’s All Time Great”.
“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!”
