Cranberries' Dolores O'Riordan Mourned During Open Coffin Public Reposal

The remains of the deceased will also repose at Cross's Funeral Home in Ballyneety, Co Limerick, on Monday 22 January, from 4.00pm followed by removal at 8.00pm to Saint Ailbe's Church, Ballybricken.

She left an indelible body of work, and I'm going to miss her voice - in more ways than one.

Meanwhile, the inquest in to the sudden death of the Cranberries lead singer has been adjourned until April 3 as the Westminster Coroner's office await the results of further tests.

"As we file past her coffin, let's pray for her, her family and those she loved and helped in life", Bishop of Limerick Brendan Leahy told the many mourners gathered at the church, according to Rolling Stone.

"She was 46 years old", O'Riordan's rep said in a statement.

Police have already said that her death is not being treated as suspicious.


"The London Ambulance Service was contacted and verified her death at the scene".

"I will continue to stumble around this planet for some time knowing well there's no real place for me here now".

Her The Cranberries bandmates - Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler, and Mike Hogan - said they were "devastated" by the news, adding "the world has lost a true artist".

A book of condolence was opened at Limerick City Hall earlier this week, while an online book is also available here.

"She was 46 years old".

"We come to offer a heartfelt greeting to a deeply loved and cherished daughter of Limerick, a talented representative of the potential of Limerick people and a convinced advocate of living life in truth, love and peace". She kept the links with Limerick.
