"O'Connor lamented what she described is a lack of support from loved ones, saying that "strangers on Facebook" are kinder to her than her own family. She asked her adult children and their fathers to make an effort to bring her home to Ireland."

I feel bad for her. What does she need to get to Ireland? Is it just a matter of money?

Two things standout to me.
1) Is she telling the truth about her family not caring or helping???

2)If #1 is true then that should tell everyone something.

Why is she living in a motel in New Jersey? Why isn't she in Ireland and why won't Ireland help one of their own?

I am sure there are two sides to this story. She has been quite controversial over the years. Wonder what precipitated her own family not helping her.

Well didn't want to go there, but since door has been opened..


Remember Sinead O'Connor from back in the 1980's with her hit "Nothing Compares To You"... May even still have the CD somewhere. But quite frankly not long after that the woman went off the deep end (destroying an image of the Pope and so forth), and mostly is known since for her outbursts or whatever.


At some point you don't know if the woman truly has issues, and or is just seeking attention for publicity sake.

Beautiful voice. People everywhere have some of the same issues and problems that others do.

Well even if she's crazy and controversial, I'm sure she still has some fans. She could just set up a GoFundMe account if she needs money and people will donate.

I have a feeling she will get through this.
