The President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, was one of the first to pay tribute to Irish singer Dolores O’Riordan upon news of her unexpected death in January 2018.
As the lead singer of the Cranberries, O’Riordan’s beguiling voice gave the band an edge and sensitivity that made them one of the most recognisable alternative rock bands of the ’90s. Her songwriting touched on the personal as well as the political and for many defined a generation.
This song was a hit in Ireland long before the Cranberries were well known in North America.
