Sinead O’Connor’s funeral cortege passes through her hometown
Troubled Sinead O’Connor had “suffered more than her share of hardship and adversity”, a heartbreaking eulogy delivered at her private funeral today (August 8) stated.
Reflecting on her difficult life but exceptional talent, Imam Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri said: “Gifted with a voice that moved a generation of young people, she could reduce listeners to tears by her otherworldly resonance.
“One need only listen to her a cappella version of Danny Boy or the traditional Irish tune Molly Malone to know this about her gift.
“Sinead’s voice carried with it an undertone of hope, of finding one’s way home,” he mused.
“The Irish people have long found solace in song from the sufferings of this lower abode, and Sinead was no exception, and in sharing that solace, she brought joy to countless people the world over.”
