Police say they don't consider the death suspicious, meaning they have found no sign of foul play.

As is often customary in the Irish Catholic religion, Dolores' body was on display for the public in the open casket repose.

The New York-based DJ and record producer was quoted in an emotional update on the D.A.R.K. band's official Instagram following the untimely death of The Cranberries vocalist.

Her art is handsome. The energy she continues to radiate is undeniable.

Lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's lyrics were punctuated by a voice that was equal parts power, indignation, tenderness and liberation.

Large crowds are expected to gather between 12.30 and 4pm, as the body of The Cranberries' singer lies in repose at St. Joseph's Church, O'Connell Avenue.

One of O'Riordan's gifts, though, was to channel the pain and violence of the daily headlines into polemics against the inhumanity she witnessed in the world.

Father James Walton, the parish priest in the Irish singer's home town, said a funeral mass will take place at the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken, County Limerick, at 11.30am on Tuesday.

Coroner's officer Stephen Earl said O'Riordan was found unresponsive in her hotel room and was declared dead at the scene by ambulance workers.

Just weeks before the 46-year-old's singer death, the couple rang in the New Year together.

On Monday, O'Riordan will be moved to Cross's Funeral Home in Ballyneety, where the public viewing will continue.
