The tragic death of Limerick’s own pop icon Dolores O’Riordan in January 2018 robbed Ireland of one of it’s greatest voices.
The legacy of work by Dolores and the Cranberries means her memory will always ‘linger’, and now her fellow bandmates have given their blessing to a fundraising initiative by a group of Irish female singers for women and children in dangerous domestic situations.
Irish Women in Harmony, is a collective of over 40 Irish female artists, who have come together to record ‘Dreams’ by the Cranberries.
All funds raised from this beautiful recording will go to the Safe Ireland Covid-19 Emergency Fund, which will be distributed through the agency’s 39 member services to meet the needs of women and children fleeing violence and abuse in their homes.
And it’s wonderful.
Safe Ireland says ‘In order to address the problem of domestic abuse we need a strong community response, and this amazing collaboration is exactly that. A community of talented Irish female artists coming together to send a powerful message to those living with domestic abuse – they are not alone.’
Those behind the project must have been delighted to see this message on their social feed.
Congrats to all the sounders involved👍👏👏
