Last night.

The Cranberries’ Grammy-nominated In The End features vocals recorded by Dolores O’Riordan before she died, and the surviving members – top from left: bassist Mike Hogan guitarist Noel Hogan, and drummer Fergal Lawler – finished the record with the support of the lead singer’s family.

Dolores’ mother, Eileen, also released a statement:

“Dolores would be so happy with this, she put her heart and soul into her songs and music. For us as her family it’s kind of bittersweet, we’re immensely proud yet saddened that she isn’t here to witness and enjoy this, although I feel that she is in spirit.”

At the University of Limerick.

The university conferred Honorary Doctorates of Letters on the band members of The Cranberries.

Guitarist and songwriter Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler were all presented with the doctorates while Eileen O’Riordan, mother of the late singer Dolores O’Riordan, was presented with a posthumous Honorary Doctorate of Letters for her daughter.

Speaking at the ceremony, University of Limerick president Dr Des Fitzgerald said:

UL had initially planned to present these doctorates to The Cranberries in April 2017, however promotional and rehearsal commitments prevented the band from being available to accept the honour at that stage.

“It is with very sad regret that since that time the world and more importantly her family and band mates have lost Dolores O’Riordan and her incredible voice.

We very much appreciate her family’s presence here today and particularly her mother Eileen who is accepting this Honorary Doctorate on Dolores’ behalf.”
