This Sunday February 25 will see a touching tribute to Dolores O’Riordan at a special event in Róisín Dubh, all for a very worthy cause.

This celebration of Dolores’ life and music will feature live performances of Dolores’ songs from some of Galway’s finest musicians, and all proceeds will go to Chernobyl Children International which the singer supported for many years.

Dreaming Her Dreams: A Night in Memory of Dolores O’Riordan will include some of The Cranberries’ best-loved songs; Zombie, Linger, Dreaming my Dreams, When You’re Gone and many more.

The live set will feature Tracy Bruen, Anna Mullarkey, Barbara Vulso, Steven Sharpe, Orlagh De Bhaldraithe, The Flying Head ft. Therese McManus, Niceol Blue, Paul McManus and Coili Mullins and many more.

Organiser of the event, Elena Toniato, commented on the legacy she left behind and the influence she has had on many of our musicians.

“Dolores has left a rich and wonderful legacy of songs and we would like to honour her, and her exceptional talent, with this tribute,” she said.

“Galway has a wealth of skilled musicians, many of whom were inspired by Dolores, and I am deeply grateful to them all for being a part of this. I have been a fan of The Cranberries ever since they shot to fame in the early 90s and I invite all her fans to join us for what will be a very special night in Dolores’ memory.”

The event will take place on Sunday February 25 in Róisín Dubh from 7.30pm.

Tickets €8/€6 are available on the door and all monies raised on the night will go to the charity, Chernobyl Children International.
