IRELAND SAYS GOODBYE TO SINGER DOLORES O’RIORDAN

Dublin / Singer Dolores O’Riordan, leader of the band The Cranberries who died yesterday at the age of 46 in London because of reasons yet unknown, appears today in the front pages of all Irish press and the most repeated headline is the one that describes to the artist from Limerick (southwest of Ireland) as the “voice of an entire generation”, highlighting her status as a global icon of music in the last decade of the 90s.

On Monday, Dolores O’Riordan died in London, where she was for several days to participate in “a brief recording session”, according to her representative.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police confirmed that a call was received to go to a hotel in Park Lane, in the London area of Westminster, at 0900 GMT on Monday.

The authorities certified the death of O’Riordan and his death, at the moment, is due to “unexplained” causes.

Born in the small town of Ballybricken, near the city of Limerick (south-west of Ireland), Dolores Mary Eileen O’Riordan stood out very early for her ability as a singer in a traditional Irish style that she successfully mixed to pop / rock / grunge of The Cranberries.

Keyboardist and guitarist too, she was married to the musical entrepreneur Don Burton, linked to the British group Duran Duran, but they separated in 2014 after almost 20 years of marriage, during which they had three children.

After some frustrating beginnings, the band came to captivate millions of people in the 90s, decade in which they published their legendary albums Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can not We? (1993) and No Need To Argue (1994).

The press describes the “commotion” that has caused the death of O’Riordan in this country and collect the reactions and tributes rendered by numerous personalities, from the Irish president, Michael D. Higgins, and the prime minister, Leo Varadkar, to his companions of the world of the spectacle.

The other three members from The Cranberries, Fergal Lawler, Noel Hogan and Mike Hogan, said they felt “devastated” by the sudden death of Dolores and assured in a message on the profile of the group on Twitter that the “world has lost a true artist”.

“She had an extraordinary talent and we feel privileged to have been part of his life since 1989 when we formed The Cranberries,” the three musicians wrote.

Last night, U2 singer, Bono, and Australian musician Nick Cave also remembered O’Riordan during a concert organized in Dublin to celebrate the 60th birthday of The Pogues leader, Shane McGowan, an appointment that finally focused his attention on this tragic event.
