Sinead O’Connor has revealed that her 17-year-old son took his own life by hanging himself after he went missing from the hospital last week.
The Irish singer disclosed this on social media while describing the circumstances of her son’s death as she vowed to ‘never forgive’ Irish authorities caring for him
The heartbroken mother, 55, confirmed yesterday on Twitter that her ‘beautiful’ son Shane, who she described as ‘the light of her life’, had ‘decided to end his earthly struggle’.
The singer criticized the Irish authorities, including the child and family agency, Tusla, for their ‘refusal to accept responsibility’ and claimed ‘too many kids were dying on their watch’.
The ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ singer said she has identified the body of her son who was last seen in Tallaght, South Dublin, on Friday morning. He had gone missing from the hospital a day earlier.
In a post on social media, O’Connor wrote: ‘I have now formally identified the remains of my son, Shane. May God forgive the Irish State for, I never will.
‘Now, Tusla want to discuss with me ”a media release” no doubt wishing to have me join in their efforts to make this death of my child seem like it wasn’t at the hands of the Irish State.
