facebook post preceding the overdose:

There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear. What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family, by St Pats and by An Gardai Siochana, by my son, Jake and by Donal Lunny and Angela singleton, by my son's girlfriend, his friends... after everything I've been put through and been forced to go through alone .. And punished for having to go through since I had the surgery on August 26th. Or since Shane became unwell in March, This week has broken me. The withholding of my babies from me without any sound reason by their fathers, Frank and Donal, and by Jake and the rest of my family, is a horrific set of betrayals. And has been going on since I had my surgery. The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I'm at a hotel, somewhere in ireland, under another name
If I wasn't posting this, my kids and family wouldn't even find out. Was dead for another fortnight since none of them bother their hole with me for a minute. I could have been dead here for weeks already and they'd never have known. Because apparently I'm scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like shit just when I've had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick. I'm such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I've been alone. Howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all t go fuck myself. I'm invisible. I don't matter a shred to anyone. No one has come near me. I've died a million times already with the pain of it. So yeah.. Strangers like me.. But my family don't value me at all. They wouldn't know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn't fucking informing them now.
well done guys, you've finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn't drop sooner. I'm an idiot. When you planned to get me away from my babies did you plan for me losing my mind over it? It being the final straw? For how you're gonna explain why I died? Make sure you tell the truth. BARRY.. THEY WONT. YOURE THE ONLY ONE WHO KNOWS ME OR THE TRUTH. PLEASE STAND FOR ME AND TELL IT. i can't play twister. My children don't care if I live r die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never ever do this to a woman again. Let this be your lesson. I survived it when John waters did it.. I can't survive Jake doing it.

Front page of the Irish Sun today - "The World Prays for Sinead."

Don't get me wrong, I hope the medical team sort her out and she gets some after treatment, but pray?! What use is that?
She can only help herself if she allows it.

Poor kid. It didn't take long for someone to find her, thank goodness.

And to day that the world is praying is, well, a bit of an exaggeration.

Isn't she a minister of a church or something?

Dunno. I lost track of what's she's at a long time ago.

I guess she's big into Christianity as she has a large depiction of Jesus tattooed on her chest.

An RCC bishop, I think, ordained her and was excommunicated as a result due to her being a woman. Her priesthood was of course never recognised by the church.

She believes in Christ, etc. She's just a huge critic of organised religion.

I like her. She's loopy for sure and troubled (don't know if that's mental illness or trauma or both) but I think she's well-meaning and a fundamentally good person with valuable insights and ideas about the world. I hope she gets help.

Doesn't look like that's been her immediate response, judging by this.

I'm not qualified to diagnose people with personality disorders - and even if I were, media reports would not be the way to do it - but if she announced she'd been diagnosed with BPD or similar, I'd be entirely unsurprised.

Pity. Fantastic voice.

That note gave me shivers, my ex-wife could have written it. Nothing is her fault, it's all other people treating her badly. The ex was BPD with a healthy dose of narcissism thrown in for spice.
