The Cranberries singer died last week at the age of 46.

After two days of public mourning, Dolores O’Riordan’s close family and friends will gather in a small rural church in Ballybricken to say their final goodbyes.

Last night candles lit the streets as her family and friends accompanied her hearse to the church where the mass will take place this morning.

Her funeral mass takes place this morning, she’ll be laid to rest beside her father Terry at a private family burial.

At midday today, independent Irish radio stations will play The Cranberries' 'When You're Gone' in tribute to Dolores O'Riordan.

It's to coincide with her funeral which takes place in Ballybricken in Co. Limerick this morning at 11.30.

A similar gesture was made when Today FM DJ Tony Fenton passed away in 2015.
