Remembering The Late Cranberries Singer Dolores O'Riordan

"Irish and global singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today, family members are devastated", Lindsey Holmes said in a statement.

Dolores O'Riordan, lead vocalist of The Cranberries, has passed away today (15 January).

But a naturally reserved singer, O'Riordan often struggled with fame, leaving her native Ireland for several years to avoid the spotlight.

The Irish singer from Limerick led the Cranberries to global stardom in the 1990s with singles including "Linger" and "Zombie".

No further details were immediately available, the statement said.

Holmes says the singer's family is "devastated" by the news.

Forming in Limerick, Ireland in the late '80s, the band was originally fronted by singer Niall Quinn, who later exited the group and O'Riordan was brought in as the replacement.

However, at the end of a year ago Dolores made a statement on The Cranberries' official Facebook page stating she was "feeling good" and was doing her "first bit of gigging in months".

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

She is survived by three children - her son Taylor, 20, and daughters Molly, 16 and Dakota, 12, according to People. She claimed she remembered nothing about the incidents. They got back together in 2009.

Their biggest hits, Linger and Zombie, catapulted the Limerick band to arena-filling status and were frequently covered by other artists.

She later described herself as "just a child back then" and said she had only ever been out of Ireland once to visit her older sister in London.

In February 2016 O'Riordan said she would use "music, dancing and performing to improve her mental health" after avoiding a criminal conviction for assault at an airport.
