As you know the ceremony was live streamed on the UL website yesterday, the University also shared great photos live on their socials, as seen on Instagram
Here’s the short video they posted online:
Media covered the event early in the evening (click on each image below to read their articles directly on their websites):
The Cranberries of course appeared on yesterday evening’s Irish TV news (Virgin Media and RTE):
“I know that she’s happy & in heaven” – the words of Dolores O’Riordan’s mum Eileen, who accepted a posthumous award for her daughter from @UL. @EricGClarke has this report: pic.twitter.com/2uK46LcX40

…and this morning in the Irish papers with many more articles. The band even featured on the front page of a few newspapers:
Yesterday The Cranberries were presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters. Fergal was unable to attend and his doctorate was accepted on his behalf by Mike. The mother of Dolores, Eileen O’Riordan, was presented with a posthumous Honorary Doctorate of Letters for Dolores O’Riordan.
Congratulations to the new Doctors!

Thanks to irishsoul for sharing
“In The End” just appeared on iTunes revealing tracklist order as well as duration of “All Over Now” (4:16)
Let’s note that the track “Crazy Heart” does not feature on the album unlike what we initially thought.
It seems iTunes (France and Italy) got the tracklist wrong as all other platforms (including The Cranberries official webstore) announced “Crazy Heart” as track #8 as well as a different tracklist order.
The band announced “All Over Now” is to premiere tomorrow at 1:30pm on BBC Radio 2.
The track should thus not be available on any streaming platform before January 15h, 2pm!
The Cranberries will be giving some interviews in the upcoming days, here below the programs where they should be making an appearance (UK & Ireland time):
- Monday 14 January: ITV – News at 10 – 10.00 PM
- Tuesday 15 January: BBC Radio 2 – 1.00 PM
- Tuesday 15 January: BBC One (TV) – The One Show – 7.00 PM
