The Cranberries reveal 'first ever photo' taken of legendary Limerick band

Picture of the band PICTURE: THE CRANBERRIES/TWITTER

THE CRANBERRIES have revealed what they believe to be the first ever photograph of the legendary Limerick band this Saturday evening. 

Posting the black-and-white picture on Twitter, The Cranberries said: “We reckon this is the first ever photo taken of us! It's a bit blurry because it's so old. Every beginning has an end—what a ride.”

The picture features a young Dolores O’Riordan and her three bandmates Fergal Lawler, Noel and Mike Hogan. Though the location has yet to be confirmed, Mayor Daniel Butler reckons it’s “out the back of City Hall” at Merchant’s Quay. 

On January 18, The Cranberries were conferred with honorary doctorates at University of Limerick. This includes a posthumous award for Dolores O’Riordan—who died in January 2018—which was given to her mother Eileen.
