Sinéad O'Connor's teenage son Shane dies aged 17

Sinéad O’Connor’s son Shane has died at the age of 17.

The singer shared a statement, writing on Twitter: ‘My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the very light of my life, decided to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God. May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace.’

The teenager, whose parents are Sinéad and fellow Irish musician Dónal Lunny, was reported missing earlier this week.

Irish police force An Garda Síochána had issued an official report appealing for information on January 6 after Shane went missing from an area of Dublin.

On Saturday Gardaí confirmed to the Irish Examiner that the search for Shane had been stood down following the discovery of a body in Bray, County Wicklow.

A Garda spokesperson said: ‘Following the recovery of a body in the Bray area of Wicklow on Friday, 7th January 2022, a Missing Person Appeal in respect of Shane O’Connor, 17 years, has been stood down.

‘An Garda Síochána would like to thank the media and public for their assistance in this matter. No further action is required and no further information is available at this time.’

Sinead also shared the Bob Marley Song Ride Natty Ride, and said it was ‘for my Shaney’.

She wrote: ‘The light of my life. The lamp of my soul. My blue-eye baby.

‘You will always be my light. We will always be together.

‘No boundary can separate us.’

At 17, Shane was Sinéad’s second-youngest child; she also has Jake, 34, Roisin, 25 and youngest son Yeshua, 14.
