Hundreds of people have gathered in Limerick this afternoon to pay their respects to Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, whose body is in public repose.

The 46-year-old was found dead in a hotel in London on Monday.

This afternoon, her coffin was carried into Saint Joseph's Church in Limerick.

Members of the public queued to pay their respects.

On Monday, her body will also lie in repose at a funeral home in Ballyneety from 4pm.

Her funeral will take place at the Church of Saint Ailbe in Ballybricken on Tuesday before a private family burial.

The inquest into the death of the singer opened in London on Friday.

Officials said they are awaiting the results of 'various tests', and the hearing was adjourned until April 3rd.

Police have already said that her death is not being treated as suspicious.

A book of condolence was opened at Limerick City Hall earlier this week, while an online book is also available here.
