44 Irish female artists team up for cover of Cranberries ‘Dreams’ to raise funds for Safe Ireland charity


Last night, a cover featuring 41 Irish female artists covering The Cranberries’ ‘Dreams’ to raise support for the charity Safe Ireland which helps and children living in crisis. 

There has been a 25% rise in domestic violence calls to An Garda Síochana reported in Ireland during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The track was the brainchild of RuthAnne  who said, “There are so many amazing trailblazers and emerging female artists and musicians in Ireland. In what sometimes seems like a male dominated industry in this country, we feel like it’s important to inspire the young girls of today by showcasing all of the incredible women in Irish music. More importantly, we wanted to come together as the Irish Women in Harmony to raise awareness and funds for a charity close to all of our hearts, Safe Ireland, who support domestic abuse victims and survivors. During lockdown the rates of reported abuse have risen by a frightening 25% and we want to help in whatever way we can. We are covering an iconic song, “Dreams” by The Cranberries. Dolores was an influence and inspiration to all of us so we wanted to pay homage to her. Having all of us coming together, women supporting women is exactly what’s needed and we hope this movement spreads far and wide and inspires others.”
