The Irish singer was found dead aged 46 at a hotel on central London's Park Lane on Monday morning.

"The London Ambulance Service was contacted and verified her death at the scene".

The parish priest from O'Riordan's home town, Fr James Walton, said the funeral mass will take place on Tuesday in the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken, Co Limerick, at 11.30am.

He continued: "A post-mortem has now been carried out and the court is awaiting results of various tests that have been commissioned".

Police say they don't consider the death suspicious, meaning they have found no sign of foul play.

Dylan Farrow appeared on the morning gabfest to give her first on-camera interview where she repeated the charges. "Honestly yes. A CT state prosecutor at the time found probable cause to charge Allen but thought Farrow too fragile to face a celebrity trial.


"Zombie is an incredibly personal song and although we are a hard rock band, we always felt the rawness and honesty she projected on stage and in her recordings was something to which all bands should aspire to, regardless of genre".

Andy Rourke, fellow bandmate and former member of the Smiths, also wrote parting words for the late singer, claiming he is "heartbroken and devastated" and "will miss her terribly".

Meanwhile combined sales and streams of the band's singles rise 1134% since the previous week, with three tracks re-entering today's Official Singles Chart Top 100.

The band set up a session with O'Riordan in London not sure if she would add a lead or backup vocals to their grinding version, and in the wake of her death they still don't know what her plans were.

"We wanted to express our sympathy to her family because it is such a loss for them and also to show our deep love for everything she did and out admiration for everything she achieved", she said. Vext said O'Riordan's lyrics about social unrest, political turmoil and humanity's persistence are still relevant.
