The Cranberries have announced a series of summer gigs.

Guitarist and songwriter Noel Hogan announced one of a "few shows" planned for 2016 on Twitter.

The Limerick group, fronted by Dolores O'Riordan, will play the Festi’neuch festival in Neuchatel, Switzerland on June 9.

"This is one of a few shows planned for this summer.  More Cranberries dates coming soon," tweeted Noel.

Fans in their hometown will be hoping for a Limerick date as the band has not played live there since 2010 at the opening ceremony of the Special Olympic Ireland Games.

The Cranberries took a break after the release of Wake Up and Smell the Coffee in 2001 but reformed in 2009 to release Roses although their 107 date world tour did not include any Irish dates.

In 2013, O'Riordan initiated a High Court action against Hogan but this was struck out in July last year. Neither party has ever commented on the action.

O'Riordan also recently appeared in court on air rage charges and is due to be sentenced this month.
