RTÉ will air a documentary on Dolores O'Riordan next Monday night.

Tributes poured in from all over the world for the lead singer of The Cranberries when she passed away in her London Hotel room on January 15. The national broadcaster is set to honour the Limerick native by airing the programme which will feature rarely-seen archive footage of interviews with the star.

The documentary will be fronted by music journalist Dave Fanning who befriended Dolores when she shot to fame in the early '90s.

Fanning told the Irish Independent:

"The definitive Cranberries documentary has not been made yet, and this isn't it.

"This is more of a personal thing, having interviewed her a bunch of times in the past.

"Most of the footage is from the 1990s when they were in the middle of their heyday of 1995 and what happened to them then.

"It starts off in 1999 and then goes all the way back to the beginning in 1991."
