Sinead O’Connor’s cause of death revealed at age 56

The cause of Sinead O’Connor’s death has been revealed months after the singer-songwriter died suddenly at the age of 56.

The unexpected news came in July 2023, when O’Connor’s family confirmed his death in a brief statement. “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad,” they wrote. “Her family and friends of hers are devastated and have asked for privacy at this very difficult time.”

According to Inner South London Coroner’s Court, Sinead O’Connor died of natural causes. “Therefore, the coroner has ceased to be involved in his death,” they explained, adding that no further comments will be made about the musician.

O’Connor was found “unconscious” in a London home last summer. Although his death was not under investigation for any crime, the coroner revealed that they would be completing an autopsy.

“The death of Sinéad O’Connor in Lambeth was reported to the coroner” and “no medical cause of death was given”, the coroner’s court website stated.

“Therefore, the coroner ordered that an autopsy be performed,” the statement continued. “The results of this may not [be available] for several weeks. The decision on whether an investigation will be necessary will be decided when the results are known and the family’s submissions have been heard.”

Sinead O’Connor opened up about her mental health struggles

Sinead O’Connor had spoken openly about her mental health problems long before her death. The death of her son, Shane, in 2022 left the singer-songwriter in a particularly dark place.

“There is no point in living without it. Everything I touch, I ruin. I only stayed for him. And now he is gone,” he wrote at the time on social media. Following the alarming post, O’Connor sought help at a hospital.

Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette gave a similar tribute together in the following days.

Later this year, artists will gather in New York City for a tribute concert in honor of the late Shane MacGowan and Sinead O’Connor. The tribute concert, “Sinead & Shane at Carnegie Hall,” will take place on March 20 and will feature several performances.
