Sinéad O’Connor funeral: Pictures as mourners gather to remember trailblazing singer

Sinéad O’Connor is being remembered in Ireland, London and around the world as her funeral is held today (Tuesday, August 8).

Thousands of people gathered in the street today (August 8) to pay tribute to the late singer Sinéad O’Connor.

The artist and activist’s funeral is being held in Bray, County Wicklow, in Ireland.

Camden’s London Irish Centre is today hosting a space for people to come to “gather and reflect”.

In a statement on Sunday, O’Connor’s family said: "Sinead loved living in Bray and the people in it.

"With this procession, her family would like to acknowledge the outpouring of love for her from the people of Co Wicklow and beyond, since she left last week to go to another place.

"The Gardai have asked that people gather, if they would like to say a last goodbye to the singer, from 10.30am on Tuesday along the Bray seafront."

The 56-year-old died at her home in Herne Hill, south London, on July 26. The cause of death has not been made public but police say it was not suspicious.

Tributes were paid to her work and her activism across the musical world and beyond.

Although she retained her birth name professionally, O’Connor changed her name to Shuhada' Sadaqat after converting to Islam in 2018.
