The cause of death has not been revealed.

O'Riordan joined The Cranberries, made up of brothers Noel Hogan and Mike Hogan after reading an advertisement in a local paper in 1989

They went on to sell over 40 million records around the world, O'Riordan later releasing the solo records Are You Listening? in 2007 and No Baggage in 2009.

Family and friends have requested privacy at this time.

Such a shame. I watched her being interviewed for something last year and remember thinking what a lovely person she seemed. For some reason I always thought she had quite a harsh persona back in the 90's when The Cranberry's were big. It was good to find out she was actually a really sweet person.

I've just heard the news, it's unbelievable. Cranberries were part of my childhood's soundtrack.
