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.”
