Dolores O'Riordan Post-Mortem Results Expected This Week

Noel Hogan Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawler have paid tribute to lead singer Dolores O'Riordan who died this Monday

Yesterday, Dolores's friend and music producer Dan Waite - one of the last people to hear from her before she died - said that she left a voice message on his phone, just hours before she was found dead.

"I recall with fondness the late Limerick TD (Teachta Dala, or a member of the lower house of Irish Parliament) Jim Kemmy's introduction of her and The Cranberries to me, and the pride he and so many others took in their successes".

Andy Rourke said he was "heartbroken and devastated by the news of the sudden and unexpected passing of Dolores". "It sounded full of life, I was joking and I was happy to see me and my wife this week", he added.

A spokesman said police were continuing inquiries into the death, which was being treated as "unexplained".

One of the spokespeople of the London Hilton on Park Lane stated: "It is with deep regret that we can confirm a guest sadly passed away at the hotel on Monday 15 January".

O'Riordan's distinctive Irish lilt and yodel helped fuel the Cranberries' rapid rise in the early 1990s with global hits "Linger", "Dreams" and "Zombie".

O'Riordan gave no indication that anything was amiss in the days before her death. The band sold around 40 million records worldwide.




Dolores had a way of drawing you in through her voice, with Irish accent fully and proudly displayed.

"I was only a kid", she told the publication. The news of her passing is devastating'. "The world has lost a true artist today", the statement read.

Band mate and partner Olé Koretsky took to their band, D.A.R.K's Facebook page on Wednesday night to share his heartbreaking words in the wake of the 46-year-old's sudden death. Mayor Stephen Keary said O'Riordan "put Limerick on the music map and on a world stage". Her family is lovely. "It was an honor and I'll miss you".

The Cranberries recorded five albums with O'Riordan before they went on hiatus in 2003, the year before she launched her solo career.

She'd previously opened up about her mental health to Metro, saying: 'There are two ends of the spectrum - you can get extremely depressed and dark and lose interest in the things you love to do, then you can get super manic'.

While funeral arrangements have yet to be finalised, the mother of three is expected to be brought back to Ireland to be buried in her native Limerick.
