The imagery in this video is almost prophetic:

I have happy memories of driving around the Mizen Head peninsula on one of those unforgetable summer days in 1997 with "Everyone Else Is Doing It So Why Can't We" blaring on the CD player.

Poor woman, I hope she's found peace.

Nothing affected about her public persona, lovely lyrical & genuine Irish voice. RIP.

That's very young to go. I wasn't their biggest fan but they certainly put Ireland on the music map in the early 90s. They went to the US to support Suede and ended up becoming far more successful than the headliners.

Jesus, God Rest her...

Loved her voice. Some really really Iconic and generational songs The Cranberries made. WAY too young to go...

God love her kids... what a shame.

A troubled soul.

Loved her voice. Instantly recognisable.

She's at peace now

She used to hang around West Kerry quite a bit in the 90s. Built a massive house in Dunquin - and was regularly seen in Dick Macks. Ah the good old days. She was a lovely person. May she rest in peace. A sad day. Especially for her little ones. Very sorry for her loss.

Great singer with a great spikey attitude.

Recall one interview when somebody asked her did she mix champagne with Guinness (think it was a fad once) her response was "a feckin waste of Guinness and Champagne " -made me smile "

So sad to hear this. She really was a breath of fresh air. I wasn't really aware of her recent troubles but it always looked like fame didn't sit easily on her shoulders. I remember her getting really upset over a journalist's disparaging references to her family and background. Took it very badly and poisoned her relationship with the media for a long time. Some nice tributes on 2FM there earlier. RIP.

RIP I'm a great fan of her songs. 46 is very early to die.
