Dolores O’Riordan’s Hometown in Ireland Opens Book of Condolence for Singer

Dolores O’Riordan was incredibly beloved around the world, and her death sent a huge shockwave to her place of birth in Ireland, so now the town has set up a public book for residents and fans of the Cranberries singer to come pay their respects.

The Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Stephen Keary said of O’Riordan, “She was an international success, but never forgot her Ballybricken, Co. Limerick roots.”

As a mark of respect, the town has provided a book of condolence for the late-singer at the County Council’s Corporate Headquarters at Merchant’s Quay in Limerick.

All day Tuesday fans stopped by to sign the book and share stories about O’Riordan.  As we previously reported, Bono paid tribute to the “Linger” star by adding her iconic lyric into the end of a U2 song.

Council officials tell us the Irish flag is also flying half mast in all the council offices.
