‘Next of kin have been notified. The death is not being treated as suspicious. A file will be prepared for the Coroner.’ A post-mortem examination to confirm the cause of Sinead’s death appears likely because she died suddenly. It is not yet confirmed that she died in her own home.

Sinead had recently returned to London at the beginning of July, referring to the city as her “home,” and she spoke of her enthusiasm and hope for watching the ballet and creating new songs in the days leading up to her death.

Fans hoped the frail star was overcoming the depression and suicidal thoughts that plagued her for so many years, especially after the death of her son Shane last year at the age of 17. She also stated on Facebook that she wanted to go on tour in a jubilant post a fortnight ago declaring: “The b**ch is back.”
