Sinead O’Connor pays tribute to son days before her death
Sinead O’Connor had just moved back to London earlier this month after leaving the capital 23 years ago. In one of her final social media posts, the Irish musician told her fans she was “very happy to be home” and filmed a clip showing them around her new flat.
The Nothing Compares 2 U singer looked in good spirits in the video posted to Twitter on July 9. She showed off a beautiful bunch of sunflowers a friend had given her that day and moved the camera around her new pad.
The 56-year-old excitedly showed off her black Martin Johnny Cash guitar which was given pride of place on the wall.
Sinead promised fans she would be “writing some tunes” and was finishing an album which she hoped would be released next year.
In a separate tweet, Sinead shared her upcoming plans to go on tour in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the United States in 2024 and 2025.

Signing off the post, she quipped: “#TheB**chIsBack.”
Sinead explained that she had made the video after fans questioned whether her Twitter account was legitimate. She said: “Some of you are saying that you don’t believe it’s my account, it is my account. But fret not, I’m going to be a good girl…
“I look like sh** which is why I didn’t want to make a video but you know the way your kid unfortunately passing away, it isn’t good for one’s body or soul. But let’s not dwell on that.”
Her 17-year-old son, Shane, tragically took his own life in January 2022.
In another of her final tweets, Sinead called him “the love of my life, the lamp of my soul” and said “he was the only person who ever loved me unconditionally”.
