Over 30 top Irish female artists have teamed up in support of domestic abuse victims.

Covering the uber-popular Cranberries song Dreams, the single features the vocals of 39 incredible Irish female artists and musicians. Proving that Irish female musical talent is second to none, the project brings together some of the country's top performers in aid of a good cause.

Lending their vocals to the song, you'll find the likes of Imelda May, Tolu Makay, Erica Coady and Una Healy amongst many others including Laoise, Soulé, Stephanie Rainey, Sibéal, Caroline Corr, Moya Brennan, Emma Langford, Saint Sister, Fia Moon, Melina Malone, Lilla Vargen, Ailbhe Reddy, Aimée, Áine Cahill, Allie Sherlock, Elaine Mai, Eve Belle, Faye O'Rourke, Lisa Hannigan, Loah, Lyra, Niamh Farrell, Orla Gartland, Pillow Queens, Roe, Róisín O, RuthAnne, Wyvern Lingo, Aoife Dennedy, Louize Carroll, Lucia McPartlin, Maria O'Connor, Maria Ryan, Sarah Lynch and Theodora Byrne.

Posted to the Irish Women in Harmony YouTube channel, RTÉ 2FM presenter Eoghan McDermott also shared the clip to his own social media, expressing his awe at the ladies' talent. Describing it as a "f*cking phenomenal" cover, he went on to add:

"I see lots of conversations about the under-representation of Irish females on playlists and festival lineups. If ever there was a snapshot of the ferocious female talent on our little Island, this is it. Inject this elixir into your veins."

Solid advice... I've had it on repeat since last night. Give it a listen below and I guarantee you'll be saying the same.

Headed up by Grammy-Award nominated singer RuthAnne, the cover is available to stream/download now and all proceeds will go to Safe Ireland, the national social change agency working to end domestic abuse and coercive control in Ireland.
