The family of The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan are "devastated" by her death at the age of 46, her publicist has said.

It added: "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very hard time".

The cause of death has yet to be revealed.

The Cranberries, known for hits including "Zombie" and "Linger", formed around 1990 in Limerick.

"Irish and global singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today", her publicist said in a statement on Monday.

Meeting her for the first time, then, in the early 1990s following the success of The Cranberries" debut album, "Eveybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?', was more than a little nerve-racking.

The Cranberries' lead singer is pictured here on Saturday Night Live in 1994 with George Clooney.

Cotton, Perdue Attended Trump Meeting But 'Don't Recall' Sh*thole Comment
Trump, the next day, said that "this was not the language used", without specifying further what he meant. Durbin's comments follow Trump's denial of a Washington Post report.

"Some years later, after I was married, the guy "Linger" is about wrote me a long letter saying: 'I know the song's about me".

Ms. O'Riordan pleaded guilty to assaulting airport police at Ireland's Shannon Airport in 2014.

Irish president Michael D. Higgins paid his respects to the singer and said the band had an incredible influence on the country's rock scene.

In addition, O'Riordan created two solo albums, her most recent being No Baggage in 2009.

Medical reports given to the court showed she had been suffering "mania" and was described as "mentally ill" when the incident occurred.

The band formed in Limerick in 1989, and went on to enjoy remarkable worldwide success. In May 2017, she told Irish News her time with her family was the best in her life. Like so many performers who are more at home on the stage than in their everyday environment, she seemed to be wracked with insecurity. Hopefully her songs can still live on forever even years after her passing.

In interviews Dolores was guarded and painfully shy, genuinely shocked that she has been rocketed from rural obscurity to such stellar heights so quickly.
