The Honorary Patronage of Dolores O’Riordan…

January 9, 2009

On Friday the 9th of January, the Phil welcomed singer/songwriter Dolores O’Riordan to receive the honorary patronage of the society. Limerick-born Dolores is the frontwoman of one of Ireland’s most successful exports, the Cranberries. She entertained a crowded Chamber with a brief interview, discussing a career which has spanned decades and seen her perform with greats such as Pavarotti, for audiences including Pope John Paul II. After this, the rest of the Cranberries joined Dolores for a short acoustic gig, performing classic songs like ‘Zombie’ and ‘Linger’ (their first gig together in several years).

We’d like to thank Dolores and her bandmates for taking the time out of their schedules to come to Dublin, and congratulate them for a fantastic show.
