Radio stations unite for Dolores O’Riordan
RTÉ and Independent radio stations across Ireland came together to remember Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan.
Stations agreed to play The Cranberries’ 1996 hit When You’re Gone at or around midday on Tuesday, coincided to match with her funeral which took place in Ballybricken in Co. Limerick at 11.30am.
The tribute was heard across the nation, and you can see a short video of audio from today on the Choose Radio website.
Here’s Gareth O Conner tuning around at midday as well, capturing the event:
