The funeral of Dolores O'Riordan to take place on January 23

Dolores O'Riordan's coffin has been carried into her local home town's church today (January 21) where it will lay in repose for the next two days.

Hundreds have come to pay their respects to the Irish singer at Saint Joseph's Church in her home town of Limerick in Ireland.

The parish priest, Father James Walton, said a funeral mass will take place at the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken, County Limerick, at 11.30am on January 23.

The funeral mass is expected to be broadcast live by local radio. She will be buried next to her father.

A cause of death is expected to be revealed in April. 

Following the announcement of her untimely death, fans have been returning to the band's music in her memory causing sales and streams of The Cranberries' music to increase by 1000%.
