WATCH: Dave Fanning to host RTE tribute to the late Dolores O'Riordan

Dolores O'Riordan

A NEW documentary about the late Dolores O’Riordan featuring rare archive footage is due to air on RTE this Monday night. 

In the documentary, Ms O’Riordan, who passed away unexpectedly on January 15, talks frankly with RTE DJ and journalist Dave Fanning in a series of interviews he carried with the late Cranberries singer throughout her career. 

Ahead of its screening on RTE One, Fanning has shared a clip of Dolores revealing how fame affected her at the height of her career. 

"I guess, because I was brought up in the middle of the countryside, in Ireland, in the Golden Vale, I guess that it affected me very badly being far away from nature and simple things,” she told Fanning. 

"Other celebrities who grew up in big cities are used to hotel rooms and they're used to all that man-made stuff."

"I remember going for a walk when we stopped, just going for a walk up the road, looking at things like a flower. I hadn't looked at a flower in three years. Simple things like that I just got so far away from human things.” 

‘Dolores’ airs this Monday at 10.35pm on RTE One.
