Irish singer Lyra performed an emotional tribute to the former Cranberries front-woman last night.
RTÉ’s Late Late Show featured a tribute to the late great Dolores O’Riordan on Friday night.
The Limerick musician sadly passed away three years ago from yesterday.
O’Riordan was most known for her time as lead-singer of The Cranberries who had some huge hits in the 1990s.
Singer Lyra, who brought us plenty of tunes in 2020, came onto the show to cover ‘Zombie’.
iRadio’s Kayte O’Malley played snippets of her version on iWeekend. Here’s the full video:
Many have praised Lyra’s performance and spin on the famous track.
People took to twitter to pay tribute to Dolores and praise the rendition of ‘Zombie’.
