The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly at the age of 46, her publicist has confirmed.

The Irish musician, originally from Limerick, led the band to international success in the 90s with singles including Linger and Zombie.

The singer had planned to re-record Zombie the day after her death, a track wrote in response to the IRA bombing in Warrington that cost two children their lives in 1994.

It became a protest song against terrorism written about the awful events in our town, and has been covered many times since by artists of all genres.

Her current band mates in The Cranberries – Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler, and Mike Hogan – paid tribute to the lead singer on social media.
