Huge Crowds Turn Out To Say Goodbye To Dolores

Crowds wait patiently in rain to say goodbye to Dolores

Huge crowds queued in the rain for their chance to pay their respects to singer Dolores O’Riordan today.

The body of the Cranberries singer lay in repose at St Joseph’s Church on O’Connell Avenue in Limerick this afternoon.

Ms O’Riordan’s mother, as well as her five brothers and sister, accompanied her coffin to the church earlier today, where they were met by the Bishop of Limerick Dr. Brendan Leahy.

Thousands of people filed past her open coffin, to say goodbye to 46-year-old Dolores, who died in London last Monday.

Her funeral mass will take place on Tuesday morning in St Ailbe’s Church in her native Ballybricken, followed by a private burial ceremony.
