Minister Madigan pays tribute to Dolores O’Riordan

Josepha Madigan TD, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has today (Monday 15 January 2018) paid tribute to singer Dolores O’Riordan, following the announcement of her death.

Speaking today Minister Madigan said:

“I am very saddened to hear news about the death of Dolores O’Riordan at the age of just 46.

Dolores was an enormously successful artist internationally, first as part of the Cranberries and then as a solo artist. She made a huge contribution to the arts internationally, with millions of record sales worldwide.

She was an inspiration to many across the world and had a truly unique voice. Her haunting vocals on classics such as Linger and Zombie will live on forever.

I’d like to pass on my condolences to her family at what must be a very difficult time for them”
