Tributes are pouring for Dolores O'Riordan, the lead singer of The Cranberries after the news broke earlier this evening that the 46-year-old had suddenly died in London. 

Irish and international celebrities and musicians are reminiscing on her musical influence and sharing their memories and respects to social media. 

Among the well-known figures is President Michael D. Higgins, who said that "all those who follow and support Irish music, Irish musicians and the performing arts her death will be a big loss.”

Tonight's special concert in honour of Shane McGowan's 60th birthday in Dublin's National Concert hall has been dedicated to her memory. 

Dolores rose to fame in the 1990s when she fronted The Cranberries. She auditioned for the band after the previous singer left and went on to sell over 40 million records worldwide.
