Thousands of mourners, some from as far away as China, queued in the rain so they could file past Dolores O’Riordan’s open casket as fans paid their respects to the Cranberries singer.
Her body, arranged clutching a rosary, was on display for four hours on Sunday at St. Joseph’s Church in her native Limerick. Her bandmates left a floral arrangement that read “The song has ended, but the memories linger on.”

On Monday, Dolores’ remains will be reposed at a local funeral home from 4-8pm with the funeral itself scheduled for 11:30 am Tuesday at St Aible’s Church, Ballybricken. That will be followed by a private burial in Caherelly Cemetery. Dolores will be laid to rest alongside her late father Terry.
