O’Connor had only recently moved back to London after more than 20 years away, tweeting that she was “very happy to be home.” She was hospitalized last year after posting disturbing tweets after her 17-year-old son Shane died by suicide. She recently wrote that she has “Been living as undead night creature since. . He was the love of my life, the lamp of my soul. We were one soul in two halves. He was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I am lost in the bardo without him.”

The singer-activist’s family confirmed her death yesterday, releasing a statement reading, “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad. Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

Her death prompted an outpouring of tributes from fellow musicians, fans and Irish dignitaries. Read a selection here.
