I send all my love and respect to the family. If I as fan am beyond heartbroken I cannot imagine what the family and people close to Dolores must be feeling. She will be greatly missed. As an artist she was never afraid to say what she felt, and you can feel and hear the passion in her voice through her music. Dolores will never be forgotten, she did more than just make music. She made art, she spoke truth, she made us think and analyze the world around us, but she also made us happy, at peace and feel love. She was an inspiration and will for ever be missed. You will always live in your music and in my heart. Rest in peace and by Gods side, sweet Dolores.

As a young man in Malawi in the 90's, hearing Dreams for the first time made me proud to be Irish and say I was from Ireland where that music comes from - not in a nationalistic inward looking way but as a someone proud of our heritage and culture. You had such incredible talent, so much vulnerability and strength in your angle's voice. I don't think we will ever see your like again - rest easily you always had our dreams.

Thank you for sharing your gift with the world and showing us Limerick girls that we can achieve anything, You will be deeply missed and never forgotten xxx

I am Turkish. I first listen The Cranberries when I was 15 and I didn't know English but I amazed by her voice. I never stop listen her since that time. She made me love English. She made me love music and she made me. I don't know what to say because I still can't believe this. One thing I know is I will never stop missing her. She was there for me all the time. I went to The Cranberries concert in 2010 at çeÅŸme. I was on the front. I was screaming and singing all the time. She noticed me and winked at me. I still cannot forget that moment because it was precious for me. I wish I could turn back time and go to that moment again. I'm going to miss you babe. I love you. 

Thank you, Dolores, thanks for your music. Thank you for the happiness that you gave. Your songs have been with me for 20 years and will be my whole life. Your voice is in my heart. God rest your soul.

Lamento profundamente el fallecimiento de tan grande persona, la primera vez que la escuche quede impactada por lo increíble que sonaba su voz y el sentimiento que se sentía en sus canciones.  Estoy realmente conmovida por su pérdida, expresó y extiendo mis condolencias a su familia, amigos e Irlanda en general.
