"No further details are available at this time", Holmes said, adding that the singer's family was "devastated" by the news.

Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries performs at L'Olympia on May 4, 2017 in Paris, France.

It read: "It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Dolores O'Riordan, musician, singer and song writer".

O'Riordan was still active in her career, performing as recently as December, according to The Cranberries' social media accounts.

In a 2009 interview with The Canadian Press, O'Riordan said part of the decision rested on the pressures of celebrity.

The band announced her death in a statement but did not disclose the cause.

Their 1993 debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? She claimed she remembered nothing about the incidents.

A native of Sherrill, N.Y., Patricia was an offensive lineman at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. ESPN reported Sunday that "eventually the deal (with the Lions and Patricia) is likely to get done".

However, at the end of previous year Dolores made a statement on The Cranberries' official Facebook page stating she was "feeling good" and was doing her "first bit of gigging in months". She is survived by her three children, Taylor Baxter, Dakota Rain, and Molly Leigh.

Continuing, the statement asks for privacy for her family at this heartbreaking time. Like so many performers who are more at home on the stage than in their everyday environment, she seemed to be wracked with insecurity.

Dave Davies, a founding member of 60s rock group The Kinks, expressed his sadness and surprise at O'Riordan's death. The Limerick band became well-known internationally in the 1990s with hits including "Zombie" and "Linger".

The band burst onto the worldwide music scene in the 1990s with their hit song, Linger, followed by the generational anthem, Zombie. Hopefully her songs can still live on forever even years after her passing.

For a time, O'Riordan was one of Ireland's richest women, but she struggled with both physical and mental health problems.

Leaving the court, she said: "I don't really have much to say, just that I'm glad it's over". I was very disappointed to hear today that she has left us so early in life.

As always, our thoughts are with Dolores' family and fans during this incredibly heartbreaking time.
