After O'Connor's death, Irish President Michael D. Higgins praised the musician's character, as well as for her contributions to music and Ireland as a whole.

"What Ireland has lost at such a relatively young age is one of our greatest and most gifted composers, songwriters and performers of recent decades, one who had a unique talent and extraordinary connection with her audience, all of whom held such love and warmth for her," Higgins said in a statement, according to the BBC.

O'Connor released a total of 10 studio albums throughout her celebrated career. Some of her biggest hits include "Nothing Compares 2 U" and "The Emperor's New Clothes."

In 1992, O'Connor sparked controversy when she appeared on Saturday Night Live and shredded a photo of Pope John Paul II in protest of the sexual abuse of children in the Catholic church. As a result of backlash, O'Connor received a lifelong ban from NBC.

O'Connor's death comes just one year after the death of her son, Shane, who died at age 17 in 2022.

In the wake of his passing, O'Connor canceled all her scheduled shows and announced she would not perform for the remainder of the year.
