She is survived by her three children, Taylor Baxter Burton, Molly Leigh Burton and Dakota Rain Burton. The band group members had also stated that O'Riordan was to record a new version of her hit single, "Zombie" with the band, "Bad Wolves".

Dolores O'Riordan was found dead in her hotel bathroom by a maid, it has been revealed.

"But nothing equals the wrenching loss felt by her children, her loved ones, family and friends".

"Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very hard time", the publicist, Lindsey Holmes, said in a statement.

The official Cranberries website cited, "medical reasons associated with a back problem" preventing singer Dolores O'Riordan from performing.

The Cranberries shot to fame with their 1993 debut album "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" after the hit song "Linger" was picked up by MTV. O'Riordan released a solo album, "Are You Listening", in 2007, and another, "No Baggage", in 2009.

Aedin Ní Bhriain, principal of Dolores's old school Laurel Hill Coláiste, paid tribute to a much-loved former pupil: "She was heavily involved in music throughout her years in the school and even when she made a decision to marry she invited the school choir to sing at the wedding". "The news of her passing is devastating", he said.

HK activist sentenced to 90 days in prison
Fourteen other defendants including leading activist Lester Shum were given suspended sentences on contempt charges. After the sentence, both activists had sought a suspension of the sentence, hoping to file an appeal against it.

Here is a list of songs from The Cranberries to help us all remember Dolores and what she brought to the world of music.

In 2014, she told the Belfast Telegraph that she once tried to take her own life. She had come into the restaurant where I was a chef.

Her family, she said, were her "salvation". Later she told the media that she had been stressed from living in NY hotels following the end of her 20-year marriage. In recent years, she had combined being in The Cranberries with writing with D.A.R.K.

"There have been times when I've struggled". When that artist was at the height of her powers with much left to do, then that grief is more sharply felt. "You get ups as well as downs".

In another interview she said the best thing about her life was being a mother: "The best time in my life was the years spent at home with my family".

"This guy asked me to dance and I thought he was lovely..."

"I was chuffed to see inside the place".
