The singer of The Cranberries Dolores O & Riordan was found dead at 46 on January 15
The leader of The Cranberries, Dolores O & Riordan, drowned in her hotel room when she was four times the limit of handling alcoholic beverages, an investigation was heard today.
The Irish singer was found dead in a hotel room in the exclusive London district of Mayfair wearing her pajamas after drowning in her bathtub at the age of 46.

Before the investigation was lifted in January, the court was told that "several examinations" were awaited after a post-mortem examination, but that the police discovered that his death was not suspect.
Kilmallock's mother of three, County Limerick, was pronounced dead on January 15 at the Hilton on Park Lane, where she was staying while recording.
