The Irish Queen’s family is grieving the death of their eldest daughter, Olivia, and her husband, actor Martin O’Malley, who died Sunday after an airplane crashed on the island of Co Clare.
The British-born singer-songwriter was killed when the plane crashed at 10:15 p.m. in a mountainous area of Ireland’s north, the Irish Times reported.
Olivia O’Donnell, 26, was the first Irish Queen to perform in the United States and the first to have her own radio show.
Her husband, O’Neill, the former star of “The Office,” and a former Ireland national soccer player, played on a tour that ended Sunday.
Martin O’Mahony, Olivia’s husband, died in the crash.
They were born in Ireland in 1980.
The family issued a statement saying they are “shocked and devastated by the news of the loss of our beautiful daughter and friend, Olivia.”
The Irish Republic is a British overseas territory, with its capital in London.
The country has one of the world’s highest suicide rates and the island is among the most isolated in the world.
O’Mahonies death comes as Britain prepares to leave the European Union, and the Irish Prime Minister is also expected to announce the country’s exit from the European Economic Area on Thursday.
Ireland has one country of its own, but the rest of the country is governed by the European Communities Union.
