No cause of death was revealed. The band had been on tour in 2017 and later canceled dates due to medical reasons. 

The Cranberries rose to fame in the 90's with hits such as "Linger," "Dreams," "Zombie" and more. Their 1993 debut album "Everubody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" went multi-platinum.

Michael Higgins, the President of Ireland said, "It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Dolores O’Riordan, musician, singer and song writer," President Higgins' statement reads. Dolores O’Riordan and The Cranberries had an immense influence on rock and pop music in Ireland and internationally. I recall with fondness the late Limerick TD Jim Kemmy’s introduction of her and The Cranberries to me, and the pride he and so many others took in their successes. To all those who follow and support Irish music, Irish musicians and the performing arts her death will be a big loss."
