WATCH: Limerick musicians come together for astonishing tribute to Dolores O'Riordan
This is beautiful.
Several of Limerick's brightest musical talents — including Emma Langford, Ronan Mitchell, David Idioh, Sarah Dolan, Steve Ryan, Brendan Markham, Limerick Gospel Choir, Clare O’Brien and Paddy Dennehy — have come together to pay tribute to Limerick's most beloved daughter, Dolores O'Riordan.
Each one of the vocalists bring their own unique touch to the track, accompanied by Cein Daly (Bass), Ciaran Culhane (Electric & Acoustic Guitar), Damien Moore (Trumpet),Eoin Culhane (Electric Guitar), Keith Kelly (Harmonica), Martin Atkinson Borrull (Keys), the Nova Quartet (Strings & Flute), Post Punk Podge (Fiddle), Shane Serrano (Drums), and Steve Ryan (Electric Guitars).
The result is a rendition of The Cranberries' hit 'When You're Gone' that showcases the abundance of musical genius that the Treaty County has to offer, while tugging at the heartstrings and stirring up the tear ducts.
The accompanying video is joyous, and shows many of the musicians playing around with each other — as well as a brief cameo from Limerick sons The Rubberbandits.
All proceeds of the video are going to Midwest Simon Community.

The video was made in partnership with Limerick Self Storage, which is used by many musicians in the city to store equipment.
And just in case that's put you in the mood to listen to the original once more...
