Remembering Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan and her fierce, fragile voice

Dolores O'Riordan with her mother at her father's funeral in 2011

"She was 46 years old", a statement from her publicist said. The singer's agent, Lindsey Holmes Publicity, had explained that when he died, "I was in London for a short recording session" but did not specify subject he was going to record.

Ms O'Riordan, a native of Ballybricken, shot to global fame in her early 20s during the 1990s as lead singer of The Cranberries. "It sounded full of life, I was joking and I was happy to see me and my wife this week", he added.

Her remains are at the coroner's office in Westminster, and sources have said that her autopsy will take place "over the coming days".

The Limerick singing sensation was found dead in her hotel bathroom by a maid on Monday morning.

Police have confirmed that O'Riordan's death is not being treated as suspicious.

Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan performs during the European Border Breakers awards, or EBBA awards, in Cannes, southern France.

Existing members Mike and Noel Hogan and Fergal Lawler snapped her up and together they became The Cranberries, increasingly becoming known for O'Riordan's distinctive wailing voice.

According to Antoine, the pair had been out drinking and ended up in an argument during their night out, CBC News reported. Antoine had tried to foil police investigations with a Facebook post asking where Gargol was hours after her death.

The band released three more studio albums before splitting up in 2003.

The family of the Cranberries singer, 46, who died on Monday will receive the results of the post mortem tomorrow.

"Dolores is handsome, Her art is lovely". "She never lost sight of who she was and where she was from". "Our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends, loved ones and fans in Ireland and around the globe".

"I am heartbroken and devastated by the news of the sudden and unexpected passing of Dolores".

Her most recent project was the band D.A.R.K, which she formed with her boyfriend Ole Koretsky and former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke. Mayor Stephen Keary said O'Riordan "put Limerick on the music map and on a world stage". Ms O'Riordan went public some years ago about her fight with depression which she said was especially hard for her after her father Terence died in 2011 after a long battle with cancer. Her family is handsome. I'm absolutely gutted and I only knew her music.

She was part of the creative production for all five hit albums, and wrote nearly all of the band's biggest hits like "Zombie", "Linger", "Animal Instinct", and "Dreams".
