WATCH: A clip from Dave Fanning's Dolores O'Riordan documentary, which airs tonight on RTÉ

The documentary, simply titled Dolores, will focus on interviews between Dave Fanning and the late Cranberries singer.

Dave Fanning has posted a short clip from a documentary he has made stemming from his interviews with the late Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, which airs on RTÉ One on Monday night at 10.35pm.

In the clip, Dolores - who died on 15 January in London - discusses taking a break from The Cranberries after years of recording and playing gigs, and how that affected her in her attempts to adjust to normal life.

"The Cranberries was my life," she tells Fanning. "I was scared to stop. It was like, 'what will I do if I stop? I'll go crazy, they'll have to put me in a padded cell if I stop doing this'. Just the whole idea of stopping and not being in The Cranberries.

"I remember going for a walk when we stopped, just going for a walk up the road, looking at things like a flower. I hadn't looked at a flower in three years - simple things like that I just got so far away from human things.

"I guess, because I was brought up in the middle of the countryside, in Ireland, in the Golden Vale, I guess that it affected me very badly being far away from nature and simple things, you know?

"Other celebrities who grew up in big cities are used to hotel rooms and they're used to all that man-made stuff, you know?"
