CRANBERRIES LEAD SINGER Dolores O’Riordan will be laid to rest today.

The Limerick icon will be buried at a private family burial following a funeral at the Church of Saint Ailbe, Ballybricken at 11.30am today.

The 46-year-old singer was found dead in the Hilton hotel on Park Lane in London last Monday morning. An inquest into her death will take place on 3 April.

A removal last night was attended by President Michael D Higgins, who met with the O’Riordan family. The remains of Dolores O’Riordan were then brought from Cross’s Funeral Home in Ballyneety to St Ailbe’s for today’s service.

Canon Liam McNamara, a family friend, will be chief celebrant of the Mass which will be attended by family, neighbours, friends and by the local community.

As the church has a limited capacity, attendance is strictly reserved for family, relatives and parishioners only.

Gardaí will have a one-way traffic management plan in place from 9am.
