O’Riordan, who fronted the 90s Irish rock band, wrote many of The Cranberries hit songs including “Linger” and “Zombie.” The band split up in 2003 after 13 years, reuniting in 2009 for a world tour. O’Riordan also released solo albums – Are You Listening? in 2007 and No Baggage in 2009.

O’Riordan opened up in the spring of 2017, about living with bipolar disorder, having been diagnosed a couple of years earlier.

The Irish star divorced former Duran Duran manager, Don Burton in 2014 after 20 year of marriage. She is survived by her three children, Taylor Baxter, Dakota Rain and Molly Leigh.
