Sinead O'Connor


Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor published her memoir, Rememberings, in 2021.

The book covers her difficult childhood with a mother who was a habitual thief and violent in the way she treated Sinead.

One of the worst stories is when Marie O’Connor had Sinead sit in the front passenger seat of the car and then deliberately rammed the car into another one.

When Sinead was fourteen, she was caught stealing a pair of gold shoes for a friend to wear to a concert. She was then sent to the An Grianán Training Centre, once a notorious Magdalene laundry. She later wrote that the experience overall was a positive one.
