Laying Dolores O'Riordan to rest

Dolores O’Riordan was laid to rest in Ireland on Jan. 23 after a funeral in her hometown of Ballybricken, County Limerick.

Addressing the crowd of mourners gathered at Saint Ailbe’s Church for the funeral service, BBC reports, family friend Canon Liam McNamara said the late Cranberries front woman had “reached out to the world” and had “a unique respect for everyone.”

Among the family and friends at the service were O’Riordan’s mother, her ex-husband Don Burton, their three children, the late singer’s boyfriend Olé Koretsky and her surviving bandmates Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawler.

Along with her Cranberries bandmates,  she rose to international fame in the 1990s with the band’s debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? The Cranberries would go on to sell over 40 million records worldwide and have four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart.

O’Riordan died in London on Jan. 15 at the age of 46. Details on the cause of death have not been released, but police are not treating the death as suspicious.

In the days leading up to O’Riordan’s funeral service, thousands of fans lined up to pay their respects outside of a church in Limerick where her body lay in repose.

On Jan. 22, the night before the service, several hundred fans gathered at a Limerick park to honour O’Riordan with a mass singalong of some of The Cranberries most well known songs.
