“I’m such a lucky blessed person. I’m so thankful to God for what I have. On my eleven years of touring, I’ve seen so much deprivation and sadness. Life’s so short, it’s essential to put love and happiness first. I can’t function without love.” - taken from a letter from Dolores on 21/05/2001

A statement from the University of Limerick:
University of Limerick last week conferred Honorary Doctorates of Letters on the band members of Limerick rock band The Cranberries.
Guitarist Noel Hogan and bassist Mike Hogan were presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters. The Cranberries' drummer, Fergal Lawler, was unable to attend and his doctorate was accepted on his behalf by Mike Hogan. Eileen O’Riordan, the mother of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan, who tragically passed away this time last year, was presented with a posthumous Honorary Doctorate of Letters for Dolores O’Riordan.
UL President Dr Des Fitzgerald said “UL had initially planned to present these doctorates to The Cranberries in April 2017 however promotional and rehearsal commitments prevented the band from being available to accept the honour at that stage. It is with very sad regret that since that time the world and more importantly her family and bandmates have lost Dolores O’Riordan and her incredible voice. We very much appreciate her family’s presence here today and particularly her mother Eileen who is accepting this Honorary Doctorate on Dolores’ behalf.’
Speaking from the ceremony, Dr Noel Hogan and Dr Mike Hogan said: "We are truly humbled that the University of Limerick has decided to bestow such an honour on us. We are saddened that Dolores is not with us on this very special day but garner some comfort that she was aware that the University was going to present the Cranberries with this honorary doctorate. It is poignant that the conferring is this week, a year since her passing".
Eileen O’Riordan said: "I know Dolores would be so proud to receive such an honour from her home town, it would mean so much to her. No matter where she travelled or lived, her heart was always in Limerick and would take any opportunity to return and spend time here with her family, friends and band members".
