Limerick School of Music have performed a moving tribute to the late Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan in the form of an orchestral version of the band's hit song Zombie.

The school's senior orchestra performed the track, a No 3 hit in Ireland in 1994, at St Mary's Cathedral in Limerick on Sunday night to pay respects to O'Riordan, who passed away in London in January

Conductor Anna Jane Ryan arranged the "special tribute to Dolores O'Riordan" and in a Facebook post, the school said, "Fireworks rounded off a great concert at St Mary's Cathedral given by our LSOM senior orchestra last night with our special guests La Cañada High School Orchestra from Los Angeles.

"We had a full house and a great evening of music from both groups! Best of luck to conductor Anna Jane Ryan and LSOM orchestra as they get ready for the trip to Chester next weekend!"

Earlier this month, a cover of Zombie by US rock act Bad Wolves stormed streaming charts across the globe.

O'Riordan was scheduled to record guest vocals with the band on the day of her passing and the band decided to move forward and release the track in her memory with all proceeds going to her three children.

The anti-war song was first a massive hit on its original release in 1994 following the 1993 IRA bombing of Warrington, which killed two children.

The new version of the song has now had over 12 million views on YouTube since its release and achieved No 1 on the iTunes Rock Single charts, No 1 on the iTunes Metal Single chart and No 1 position on Spotify’s Rock Hard Playlist.

Tommy Vext of Bad Wolves explained why his band decided to cover the song: "Her lyrics, confronting the collateral damage of political unrest, capture the same sentiment we wanted to express a quarter-century later. That is a testament to the kind of enduring artist Dolores was, and will remain forever."
