Michael O'Dwyer, who knows the O'Riordan family, said he had been stunned to hear the news of her sudden death.

In 2013, she revealed to LIFE Magazine that someone very close to her had sexually abused her as a young child.

"The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries, was in London for a short recording session".

Metropolitan Police said that Dolores' death is not beaing treated as suspicioues and a coroner report is being compiled.

The Met Police said they were called to a hotel in Park Lane shortly after 9.00 am on Monday morning, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Limerick-born O'Riordan struggled with depression throughout her life, admitting that she struggled with fame.

O'Riordan was The Cranberries' chief lyricist and co- songwriter, and her powerful, sometimes wailing, voice was key to the band's distinctive sound.

The lead singer of the Cranberries may have died of Fentanyl poisoning Monday, January 15th in a possible suicide.

Ireland's Prime Minister joined a chorus of praise for O'Riordan's work, describing her as the "voice of her generation". Four of the band's singles rank in the top five most-downloaded digital songs on Amazon's list, with "Linger" (up more than 150,000%) ranking second behind "I've Been Blind" by The Fratellis.

The Cranberries released the acoustic album "Something Else" in 2017 and had been due to tour Europe and North America.

They had to cancel several concerts and said at the time that this was because O'Riordan had a back problem.

The singer had previously admitted three assaults and obstructing a garda after being taken off an Aer Lingus flight from New York's JFK to Ireland in November 2014. "She was looking forward to seeing me in the studio and recording vocals". The two deceased children were Tim Parry, 12, and Jonathan Ball, who was just 3 years old, propelled #Dolores O'Riordan to write the song 'Zombie' in memory of those bombings.

He said in a statement to the Limerick Leader: "Millions across the world have been shocked by this sad news but first and foremost I think of her family". "It gets hard as well when you have daughters because you get flashbacks when you're with them and when you are watching them. To all those who follow and support Irish music, Irish musicians and the performing arts her death will be a big loss", said the Irish President.
