A coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death on Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of Irish rock group The Cranberries, after hearing on Thursday she had died by drowning due to alcohol intoxication, media reported.
O’Riordan, whose distinctive and powerful voice underpinned the group’s rapid rise in the early 1990s, had been in London on a recording trip ahead of a planned tour.
O’Riordan, whose hits with The Cranberries such as “Linger” and “Zombie” catapulted her to fame as a shy 22-year-old, was the voice of her generation, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said in January.

It ‘is a crime’: Fox’s Bret Baier stunned that Trump just added ‘an article of impeachment’ in real-time

....They call it “serving at the pleasure of the President.” The U.S. now has a very strong and powerful foreign policy, much different than proceeding administrations. It is called, quite simply, America First! With all of that, however, I have done FAR more for Ukraine than O.
‘Shame on her!’ Conservatives howl in rage after Marie Yovanovitch invokes diplomats killed at Benghazi
Former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch invoked the names of diplomats killed during a raid at Benghazi -- and online conservatives were furious.
The former ambassador testified in the second public hearing of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, and she invoked the memory of her slain colleagues to describe the sacrifices made by officials in the State Department.
"We honor these individuals," Yovanovitch testified. "They represent each one of you here and every American. These courageous individuals were attacked because they symbolized America. What you need to know, what Americans need to know, is that while thankfully most of us answer the call to duty in far less dramatic ways, every foreign service officer runs the same risks, and very often so do our families."
