The playlist is one of several ways Dolores is set to be celebrated today. Fans can also look forward to a special livestream event this evening, kicking off at 7pm (Irish time) on the band's Facebook page.
Hosted by Hot Press's Stuart Clark, the ‘Remembering Dolores’ event – streaming from Limerick – will include a talk with Dolores' bandmates Fergal Lawler, Mike and Noel Hogan.
“As you may know, Dolores would have been 50 next Monday,” commented Fergal. “We decided to mark this special occasion by organising a live stream to chat about our memories of Dolores with an old friend of the band, Stuart Clark. We would love it if you send us any questions on social media that you would like us to answer.”
