Sinead O’Connor's cause of death revealed by coroner

The Dublin-born singer died aged 56 at her London home in July last year.

Sinead O’Connor died from natural causes, a coroner has said.

The Dublin-born singer was found unresponsive by police at her south-east London home and pronounced dead at the scene on July, 26 in 2023.

She was 56.

A statement from Southwark Coroner’s Court on Tuesday said: “This is to confirm that Ms O’Connor died of natural causes.

“The coroner has therefore ceased their involvement in her death.”

A private funeral, attended by U2’s Bono, Bob Geldof and Irish President Michael D Higgins, was held in August.

A procession then passed O’Connor’s old home in Bray, Co Wicklow, where thousands of fans lined the streets.
