Sinead O’Connor’s Final Goodbye
On July 26th, Sinéad O’Connor was found dead in her Herne Hill apartment in London. As they await to clarify the cause of death, her family has organized a funeral ceremony tomorrow, August 8th, in Bray, a small Irish town in the county of Wicklow where the singer-songwriter has lived for almost 15 years. It is a place she was very fond of and with a symbolic value for the people close to her, which is why it was chosen to pay her the last goodbye and also allow fans and inhabitants of the area to do the same.
The family has released a statement in which it reads: “Sinéad loved living in Bray and the people of that town. With this procession, her family would like to allow people of the county of Wicklow to show their love for Sinéad”. The cortege of relatives and her admirers will depart at 10.30 am from her former residence in Strand Road and will proceed to the seafront of Bray. The burial will take place in private.
As it is known, O’Connor had converted to Islam in 2018, changing her name to Shuhada Sadaqat. Probably, the part dedicated to family and closest friends will follow the Islamic rite. On the hill of the Irish town – which in recent days has been a destination for many fans who wanted to leave flowers and other tributes outside her house – an installation has also appeared on which it is possible to read: “ÉIRE ♡ SINÉAD“: a message of love and goodbye that Ireland wanted to leave to one of its most illustrious representatives.
