Imelda May has opened up about her good friend Sinéad O’Connor who sadly passed away last week.

The singer was found unresponsive in her flat in London before it had been confirmed she had died at the age of 56.

Imelda has confessed that she will miss the phone calls the pair shared over the course of their friendship.

“Sinéad was a good friend of mine and she got me through some tough times. We got each other through some stuff,” she told The Pat Kenny Show.

“We’d FaceTime each other with a cup of tea in our dressing gowns, and whinge about what we needed to whinge about and laugh about what we needed to laugh about. I’ll really miss her and I’ll miss those phone calls.”

She also explained how the public perception of Sinéad has changed so rapidly since her death.

“She’s gone from being demonised to sainthood within the matter of a week and none of us are any of those things,” she stated.

“We’re all somewhere down the middle, but I am glad that she’s getting the love. I’m glad she got to see it before she was gone, she did get to see the tide turn in her favour.”
