WATCH: Over 30 Irish female stars join forces to cover ‘Dreams’ by The Cranberries in aid of domestic violence charity
Naming themselves ‘Irish Women In Harmony’, over 30 Irish female music artists have banded together to create a cover version of The Cranberries’ ‘Dreams’.
The whole idea was dreamed up by Ruth Anne who features in the song. She wanted to come up with a way to raise money for Safe Ireland, a charity focusing on domestic abuse victims.
When she came up with the idea to cover the song ‘Dreams’, sang by the late Dolores O’Riordan, Ruth Anne never expected to get the wealth of support for the song to raise those vital funds. When it came to putting the piece together, 38 female Irish musicians and singers had signed up including Ailbhe Reddy, Aimée, Áine Cahill, Allie Sherlock, Caroline Corr, Elaine Mai, Emma Langford, Erica Cody, Eve Belle, Faye O’Rourke (Soda Blonde), Fia Moon, Imelda May, Laoise, Lilla Vargen, Lisa Hannigan, Loah, Lyra, Melina Malone, Moya Brennan, Niamh Farrell, Orla Gartland, Pillow Queens, Roe, Róisín O, RuthAnne, Saint Sister, Sibéal, Soulé, Stephanie Rainey, Tolü Makay, Una Healy, Wyvern Lingo, Aoife Dennedy, Louize Carroll, Lucia McPartlin, Maria O’Connor, Maria Ryan, Sarah Lynch and Theodora Byrne.
