April 25th: Album Launch Listening Party at Dolan’s

April 11, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries





Thursday April 25th is a night for all Cranberries fans!


Limerick’s esteemed music store Steamboat Music want to gather all fans to honour the release of The Cranberries final album ‘In The End’ releasing Friday April 26th.


The event will be taking place in Dolan’s Upstairs venue and will be an amazing opportunity to hear the new album before its official release with a panel discussion from some very special guests.


Fans can gain access to the event by pre-ordering the album from www.steamboat.ie and this will guarantee entrance to the event Upstairs in ‘Dolans’  Limericks iconic venue,  numbers are limited.


Limericks finest and most iconic band will be honoured through the night, fans will be welcomed into the venue on the night at 9pm to a wealth of great Cranberries tunes, followed by a panel discussion on the bands history and impact this band from a small town has had on the music industry.


Niall Colgan, a close friend of the band will MC the event. The discussion will feature Deci Hogan (The Cranberries Stage Manager), Eoin Devereaux (historian and writer of liner notes on previous Cranberries albums) and Orla Colgan (Dolores O’Riordan’s secondary school music teacher),  fans will then get to hear the new album will then be played in full through a top quality sound system prior to its world-wide release on Friday April 26th.


The new album ‘In the End’ is a collection of songs the late Limerick legend Dolores O’Riordan worked on prior to her tragic passing last January. “We knew this had to be one of the, if not the, best Cranberries album that we could possibly do”Noel Hogan, band mate said in a statement. Hogan and O’Riordan started work on the songs in May 2017 and had written and demoed 11 songs by that winter. “I can’t think of a more fitting way to commemorate the first anniversary of Dolores’ passing and to celebrate her life than to announce to the world the release of her final album with the band,” Eileen O’Riordan, Dolores’ mother, said in January.


About the event, Mark Carey owner of Steamboat Music say “To have an opportunity to host this once in a lifetime event is a real thrill for us. Not only have The Cranberries impacted the lives of so many people world wide, the effect they’ve had on their home town is immeasurable. To have the first listening party here in Limerick is really, really special and it’s an honour to have been approached to take on this event. Any fan of theirs and anyone that is simply a fan of music, this will be a fantastic event.”

Dolores and her classmates receiving special award in 1989

April 1, 2019  |  No Comments  |  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.

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.

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).
