Dolores O’Riordan To Be Remembered In The Best Way Possible In Her Home Town Of Limerick

Darragh Berry

Munster Rugby has confirmed that it will be remembering Dolores O’Riordan ahead of their game on Sunday in Thomond Park. 

The team are set to play French side Castres at 1pm on Sunday but not before they shed a light on the events of this week which saw the county lose one of its true greats.

The musician and Limerick native will be remembered in song at Thomond Park before kick-off. 

According to the Limerick Leader, a spokesperson for the team said there would be a number of songs by The Cranberries played in the build-up to the match and the match programme will also remember the frontwoman of one of the best Irish bands.

“We will be playing a number of The Cranberries greatest hits in the pre-match build-up on Sunday, and we will also reference Dolores’ passing in our match-day programme, noting the time the band performed at the Special Olympics Opening Ceremony in Thomond Park in 2010,” confirmed the spokesperson.

A huge and lovely gesture.
