Sinéad O’Connor Passes Away Shortly After Burying After Her Son

Just last year, in 2022, Sinéad O’Connor's son passed away.

No parent should ever have to bury a child.

Now, O’Connor herself is the one being laid to rest.

O’Connor reached stardom in the world of music way back in 1990.

It wasn't until 1992 that most of the world learned her name, though.

That was when she tore up a picture of Pope John Paul II on live television.

Unfortunately for the family of O’Connor, it was the second brutal loss they've had to endure in about a year.

O’Connor's son, Shane, passed away last year at the age of 17.

Following her son's death, O’Connor pledged to never sing again.

She said that she would "never forgive" the hospital that allowed him to walk out their doors while he was on suicide watch.

Shane was never seen alive again.

"A month ago, Shane was brought to CAMHS after vanishing leaving suicide notes including detailed funeral plans," O’Connor said after her son's death. She added:

They discharged him. Said he had no plans. When objections were raised by the adult with him she was told, ‘planning a funeral is no different to planning a wedding.’

Apparently though, Shane did have some very real plans of suicide.

Now, it's O’Connor herself whom the world is mourning.

Actress Toni Collette is one of the celebrities who expressed support for O’Connor and her family.

"I adored this woman from afar as a teenager. I will always admire her," Collette said. "I was lucky enough to hang out with her a few times in my twenties. On one occasion we all sang in the hills of Wicklow in Eire." She added:

I sang a Jane Siberry song and Sinead then asked/encouraged me to sing one of my own. Can you imagine the terror? The intimidation? The thrill?! She was so talented, so generous, humble, resilient, courageous and true. What a voice. What a force. My heart breaks. Rest in real peace Sinead.
