The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan was 'drunk when she drowned'

Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan died at age 46

The Cranberries, the second best selling Irish band after U2, released the acoustic album Something Else in 2017 before cancelling a number of concerts in North American and Europe, saying O'Riordan was suffering from back problems.

A coroner's inquest concluded today (September 6) into the death of The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan and her cause of death has been revealed.

Dolores O'Riordan, who was found dead in a hotel room on January 15, drowned in a bath as a result of intoxication from alcohol, an inquest has heard.

The inquest also heard there were empty bottles in the room.

The level of alcohol in her blood was "four times over the legal limit for driving".

"There's no evidence that this was anything other than an accident", she said.

O'Riordan's mother, Eileen, her brother and sister-in-law attended the inquest at Inner West London's Coroners Court.

While Moore signed a release for the interview, the case alleges that release itself was fraudulent. "Had Judge Moore and Mrs. Cohen had lured Moore onto the show with the claim he was to be presented with an award for his support of Israel.

In a statement in January, Irish President Michael D. Higgins said O'Riordan's death was "a big loss" to the Irish arts community. O'Roirdan reportedly suffered from bipolar disorder but responded well to treatment.

In a statement issued after the hearing, The Cranberries said: "Dolores will live on eternally in her music".

Upon her death in January, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar even called her "the voice of a generation", acknowledging her and the group's incredible influence during that decade.

The Cranberries would cement their place in the 1990s alternative scene with their 1994 album, No Need To Argue, and the hit lead single, "Zombie".

The band embarked on a United Kingdom and European tour in 2017, but it had to be cancelled in May as a result of O'Riordan's health issues. To see how much of a positive impact she had on people's lives has been a source of great comfort to us.

Since her death, it has been confirmed that one last Cranberries album featuring Dolores' vocals would be released later this year.

O'Riordan, who had three children, had recently divorced from former Duran Duran tour manager Don Burton at the time of her death.
