Those who gathered to express sympathy said the 46-year-old band member, who was from Friarstown, Kilmallock in Limerick, was a handsome person and they were shocked and saddened at her sudden death.

Noel Hogan, Mike Hogan, and Fergal Lawler, O'Riordan's current band mates in The Cranberries, also paid tribute to her on Twitter, calling her an extraordinary talent and saying they feel privileged to have known her since 1989.

President Michael D Higgins said: "It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Dolores O'Riordan, musician, singer and song writer". Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar called her "Limerick's greatest ever rock star", and that her band "captured all of the angst that came with your teenage years".

Dolores O'Riordan was born on September 6th, 1971 in Limerick, Ireland and was the youngest of seven.

Parry explained: "Only yesterday did I discover that her group, or she herself, had composed the song in memory of the event in Warrington".

The Cranberries sold more than 40 million records over their career with some of their most popular hits including "Zombie" and "Linger".
