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 said “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 worldwide, 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.”
