Eileen O'Riordan (front right) mother of Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, turns as her daughter's coffin arrives at St Joseph's Church in Limerick. "My heart is broken and it is beyond fix", Koretsky wrote.

Accoording to previous reports, the singer's friends said she was "dreadfully depressed" in recent weeks, and was also "suffering with a lot of back pain". "Dolores is attractive. Her art is lovely".

O'Riordan was only 46 when she died suddenly on Monday while recording at her studio in London.

O'Riordan's remains will be reposed at Cross' Funeral Home in Ballyneety tomorrow (January 22), before her funeral mass takes place on Tuesday. Her spiritual journey continued in many parts of our world, and yet Dolores remained anchored in Limerick.

A private Requiem Mass will be said at the Church of St Ailbe in Ballybricken, Co Limerick, on Tuesday, followed by a burial attended only by family.

"I will continue to stumble around this planet for some time knowing well there's no real place for me here now".

The hearing has been adjourned until 3 April, when a date for a full inquest will be set.

Lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's lyrics were punctuated by a voice that was equal parts power, indignation, tenderness and liberation.

The follow-up album gave rise to politically-charged single Zombie, an angry response to the deadly Northern Ireland conflict, which hit number one across Europe.

O'Riordan is survived by her three children with ex-husband, former Duran Duran tour manager Don Burton.
