One of the most recognisable voices in Irish music, O'Riordan first grabbed the public's attention as the lead singer of the Cranberries back in the early 90s. Famed for hits such as Ode To My Family and Linger, the band is also the first Irish group to surpass one billion views on YouTube for the music video for Zombie.
The popular Cranberries' song Dreams has enjoyed renewed success as of late, re-entering the charts thanks to an incredible cover of the track by Irish Women in Harmony - 39 female artists and musicians who teamed up in support of domestic abuse victims. More on that here.
