Dolores is a daughter of Terence and Eileen O’Riordan, and she has six older siblings. Dolores grew up in Ballybricken area of County Limerick, and went to Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ, located in Limerick.
Dolores joined the band Cranberries Saw Us in 1990, and the same year they released an EP entitled “Nothing Left at All”. After that, they shortened their name to The Cranberries and signed with Island Records. In 1993 their first full length studio album came out; entitled “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can`t We”, it topped the Irish and UK charts, while it achieved multiple platinum status in the USA and UK, and platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. This certainly increased Dolores’ net worth, but also encouraged her and the rest of the band to continue to produce music.
The Cranberries and Dolores continued to dominate the music scene, as their next album “No Need to Argue”, released in 1994, topped the charts in several countries, while in the USA it reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart. Also, it achieved multi-platinum status in the USA, UK, Canada and Australia, which only improved her net worth. Their third album “To the Faithfully Departed” (1996), is also one of their most successful ones, as it topped the charts in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, and achieved platinum status in several countries, adding a considerable amount to Dolores` net worth.
Before their hiatus in 2003, the band released two more albums, “Bury the Hatchet” (1999), which was far less popular than its predecessors, and “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee” (2001), which continued the decline of the band`s popularity.
After the break up, Dolores ventured into a solo career, and released two albums; her first came out in 2007 under the name “Are You Listening?”, reaching No. 77 on the Billboard 200 chart, while in the UK it peaked at No. 28. Her second album – “No Baggage” – came out in 2009, but wasn’t a major success. During inactivity of The Cranberries, Dolores also collaborated with several artists, including Zuchero, Angelo Badalamenti, and Giuliano Sangiorgi, among others.
In 2009, the Cranberries reunited for a world tour, and most recently they released their sixth album “Roses” in early 2016.
Also, Dolores is one third of the band “D.A.R.K”, also comprising of Andy Rourke, former bass player of the popular band The Smiths, and Olé Koretsky. They have released one album so far, “Science Agrees” (2016), which also improved her wealth.
Regarding her personal life, Dolores was married to Don Burton from 1994 until 2014; the couple had three children. Despite divorce, she is apparently a devout Roman Catholic, and is a great admirer of the late Pope John Paul II.
