Thousands of fans pay tribute to Dolores O'Riordan in Limerick

Details announced for Dolores O'Riordan's Funeral

Queueing outside of St Joseph's Church, many clutching white roses and daffodils, mourners of all ages arrived to attend Sunday's public reposal for The Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan, who was born in the Irish county.

An inquest into her death has now been adjourned until April 3, as medical test results are yet to conclude. Her coffin was lined with pictures of her meeting Pope John Paul II, as well as photos of her performing onstage.

"We come to offer a heartfelt greeting to a deeply loved and cherished daughter of Limerick".

She will be laid to rest in a private burial after her funeral at St. Aible's Church in Ballybricken on Tuesday.

It is believed that her remains will the be taken to Cross Funeral Home tomorrow before she is taken to St Ailbhe's Church, Ballybricken, where her funeral will take place.

Brendan Leahy, Bishop of Limerick, told the crowd: "I am conscious that, while millions across the world have been shocked by the sad news of her death, today is about Limerick's public moment to bid farewell".

Tributes have been paid by singers, producers and even Irish President Michael D Higgins, who described O'Riordan and her Irish rock band as having had an enormous influence on rock and pop music in Ireland and internationally.

Her mother and six siblings were in attendance, and her Cranberries bandmates left a floral tribute beside her coffin which read. According to fans, the star was dressed in black and held a set of pearl rosary beads.

As the church has a limited capacity of only 200 places, attendance is strictly reserved for extended family and close friends.
