Nostalgia is well and truly here to stay, it seems. The one and only Sinead O'Connor has just announced that she's playing four gigs around Ireland this year.

The Nothing Compares 2 U star is set to take to the Vicar Street stage on October 27 in a highly anticipated return to music.

She's also be performing at the famous Roisin Dubh in Galway on October 17, Spiegeltent in Wexford on October 24 and Cork Opera House on Oct 26.

Sinead is apparently ready to release new music, according to The Sun, and will embark on a tour worldwide afterwards.

Sinead debuted her new song, Milestones, last year under the name Magda Davitt. The track was a demo, produced by Northern dance DJ David Holmes.

Speaking to the Irish Sun, she said: “David wrote the music. I wrote the lyrics and melody.

She added; "This is just a first demo for fans because they never get to hear a demo. I thought it would be fun to share it.”

Tickets are priced €45 and are on sale next Friday, August 16 at 10am via ticketmaster.ie. Finally some good news for the people of Ireland.

Sinead O'Connor has shared a heart-felt video discussing her struggle with mental illness.

Fans have raised their concerns after the singer revealed she is feeling suicidal and is currently living alone in a Travelodge in New Jersey.

The Irish songstress began the 12-minute video, which she shared on Facebook, by saying: “I hope that this video is somehow helpful.”

“Not actually to me, but the fact that I know I'm only one of million and millions and millions of people in the world that are just like me, actually, that don't have necessarily the resources that I have in my heart or in my purse, for that matter.”

Sinead went on to reveal that she has been on her own “for two years” after leaving her family in Ireland “because they didn't care.”

“I’m all by myself. And there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist – the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero – and that’s about the only fucking thing keeping me alive at the moment, the fact that I’m his bloody hero… and that’s kind of pathetic.”

She continued: "Mental illness, it’s a bit like drugs, it doesn’t give a sh*t who you are. And you know what’s worse? The stigma doesn’t give a sh*t who you are."

The 50-year-old went onto explain how she suffers from three mental illnesses and spoke of her hope that her family would come take her home.

In a heart-breaking cry for help, she asked, “am I not worth fighting for?”

Fans of the star took to the comment section with words of encouragement and concern.

One wrote: “Dearest Sinead I just want to wrap my arms around you so you feel secure, cry with you because the pain needs to be released, laugh with you as laughter is so healing, to listen.”

Since then, a statement was posted to Sinead's official Facebook page assuring fans that she is is "surrounded by love and receiving the best of care."


Needless to say, this has not been a great year for Sinéad O'Connor. 

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer has been named in a a tax scandal following an audit! 

According to The Sun, Sinéad had to pay over €160,000 to the revenue as a result of a false declaration of PAYE and PRSI. 

Apparently "the Revenue Commissioners calculated a tax of €90,543, an interest of €42,599 and penalties of €27,162."

Sinéad was one of a number of names which appeared on the  tax defaulters list, which is issued every three months by our Government. 

Over 100 companies and individuals had their tax cases finalised from this year, with the tax inspectors raking in a total of €17.44 million… not bad! 

Thankfully, Sinéad was prompt paying her penalties, and she won't face further action. 


‘Granny rocks’, was the caption that accompanied a very adorable snap of Irish singer Sinead O’Conner and as she proudly showed off her first grandchild.

Posting the photo on her Facebook with the caption earlier this morning, the Nothing Compare 2U singer was certainly looking relaxed as she held the new born.

Sinead’s son Jake,27, and his partner Lia welcomed their new baby just last week and it obviously wasn’t going to take long before Sinead shared her good news with her fans.

The brand new grandmother, 48, was certainly looking rested in the photo, but she has just cancelled all of her forthcoming summer gigs due to exhaustion.

This included her scheduled performance at the Galway Arts Festival at which she was supposed to make an appearance this weekend.

A statement released by her spokesperson explained that it was doctor’s orders that were keeping her from performing in Canada, Ireland and Norway.

“She is suffering from exhaustion due to an existing not resolved medical situation and she has been advised by the doctor to stop any activity and rest.

'Because of this she is completely unable to travel and to perform.”

Sinead was also recently in the headlines when she blasted Kim Kardashian’s Rolling Stones cover shoot. Her colourful rant included the statement that the cover was a sign “music has officially died.”

She certainly isn’t one to hold back on her opinions.  



Sinead O’Connor is the latest person to speak out about her unhappiness that Kim Kardashian featured on this month’s cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

As we previously reported, a lot of people were deeply disappointed that the legendary magazine chose to give their most iconic and coveted spot to the reality TV star.

But it would appear that Ms O’Connor is the most displeased of the bunch.

Taking to Facebook once again, the Irish singer asked, “What is this c*** doing on the cover of Rolling Stone?”

“Music has officially died,” she stated.

Similarly to the cover itself, Sinead’s post has garnered mixed reviews. While many seem to agree with her that Rolling Stone have let themselves and their fans down by putting Kimmy K on the cover, others don’t find it that surprising and think that the magazine regularly do features on people like her.

One Facebook user wrote, “It’s a pop magazine, I love you Sinead but Rolling Stone does not define good music or taste. Don’t give them so much credit. Every now and then they do something good, but in general, it’s always been what’s popular.”



Sinead O'Connor has always been an activist – and she's currently very publicly supporting Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown.

Following an incident in late January at her home, the same townhouse she once shared with her late mother, 22-year-old Ms Brown is currently being cared for at a hospice facility in Atlanta.

She subsequent brain damage is believed to be extensive, and she has not been conscious in months.

In recent days, Bray-resident Sinead has changed her profile picture on Facebook to one of Bobbi Kristina. Her cover photo also shows the young woman with Whitney.

The 48-year-old, still best-known for Nothing Compares To You, has furthermore been dedicating songs to Ms Brown, who is believed to be dying.

Her first message of support was seemingly posted last Thursday, a day after Bobbi Kristina was moved to hospice care. And yesterday, Sinead posted Born Again and Somebody – both sung by R.H. Harris & His Gospel Paraders.

Sinead's fans have also been acknowledging the support she's offering.

"Whoa, what great gospel, you find the best stuff," wrote one. "I can imagine you jumping in and singing along with them… would have been pure joy. Terribly, awfully hurtful and sad situation for Bobbi Kristina, when she crosses over to the other side, her mom will be there for her again."

Another said: "Shame no one could save her, sadly this does make us all realise how sad life can be, maybe it's time to all join hands and pray for her sweet little soul."
