A New York children’s choir has paid tribute to Dolores O’Riordan with a touching cover of The Cranberries’ hit “Dreams”.

The PS22 Chorus, a choir for 5th graders - equivalent to 4th class in Irish primary school - are from Public School 22, a public elementary school in Graniteville, Staten Island.

The group are well known for their frequent music videos, which they publish on social media and have won a Webby Award, an award for excellence on the Internet.

Their latest video, posted on Monday ahead of Ms O’Riordan’s funeral on Tuesday, sees them performing the song “Dreams”, one of the band’s many world-wide hits.

The choir is conducted by Gregg Breinberg, who can be seen as the piano in the video.

So far, it’s been viewed 615,000 times on Facebook and 12,000 times on YouTube.

Proud of the kids for their hard work in putting together this beautiful rendition of "Dreams" by The Cranberries at Friday's rehearsal -- a touching tribute to the late Dolores O' Riordan....
