Dolores O'Riordan will be laid to rest today

The singer died last week.

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.
