THIS year the Dolores O’Riordan Music Bursary Scheme was launched and Limerick singer songwriter Emma Langford was the successful candidate.

She will receive €4,000 that will go towards production of her second album and upcoming projects, due for release in 2020.

The bursary was launched by Limerick City and County Council in conjunction with Dolores’ family.

In October 2019 an open call was issued and musicians were invited to submit applications for the bursary.

The assessment panel included Liz Powell of Music Generation, Vincent O’Shea and independent consultant working across events and arts and Philip Delamere a visual artists and designer.
