The singer had been anxious to return to the stage

In 2017, the band announced a tour that included dates in Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States.

However, in May, shortly after the European tour, the group had to cancel the rest of the European dates as a result of O & # 39; Riordan's health problems.

The official website of Cranberries cited "medical reasons associated with a return problem" that prevented O & # 39; Riordan from coming forward.

But just before Christmas, the singer posted on Facebook saying she was "feeling good" and had made her "first concert in months," which led fans to believe she would soon be on tour again.

A condolence book was opened at the town hall in Limerick on Tuesday and was also posted online.
