The lead singer of the Irish alternative rock band The Cranberries passed away at the age of 46 on January 15 in London, England. She is survived by her husband and three children. As of now, her death is considered sudden and unexpected, but also unexplained.

O’Riordan was born in Limerick, Ireland in 1971. While still a member of The Cranberries, her distinct vocals were featured on countless, high-grossing albums. The group is best known for their singles “Dreams,” “Zombie” and “Linger.” While The Cranberries met wide acclaim in the 1990s, O’Riordan embarked on a solo career beginning in 2004.

O’Riordan was open about her struggles with mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder. She admitted to struggling with her newfound fame early in her success.

Countless celebrities, such as Irish singer and musician Hozier, took to social media to pay tribute to O’Riordan and express their condolences to those close to her. Irish president Michael Higgins even paid his respects at O’Riordan’s removal service.
