Well Done to the two Teachers from Rathcoole, Annmarie O’Riordan and Siobhan Buckley, who guided their students Maggie Moynihan from Cullen and the Instrumental Music Group from Borris in Ossory in Laois to overall victory on Saturday in the Scór Na nÓg All Ireland Finals.

Maggie celebrated her All Ireland Victory with her wonderful Singing Teacher Annmarie O’Riordan without whose support encouragement and work today’s victory wouldn’t have come about.

RIP Dolores O’Riordan

In 1995 when the Cranberries were selling albums as fast as they could be manufactured, the Cranberries biggest show at home on the the No Need to Argue Tour was in  Millstreet. They shook the Green Glens that night, before resting in Limerick for a few weeks ahead of two months touring in Europe and the USA.

Four years later, their next Irish gig was also in Millstreet, and it was another fabulous night in the Green Glens, as they played all the crowd favourites mixed with new songs. Endearing happy memories of two special nights in Millstreet, which vividly stick in the minds as for many it was their first big concert (see comments below).

So it is with sadness that we hear of the death of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan this evening. Our prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends.
