Sinead O’Connor has found solace after the end of her fourth marriage – in the shape of social network site Twitter.

The controversial singer announced ‘great news’ on her website, just days after confirming the end of her relationship with social worker Barry Herridge.

Her ‘great news’ was two-fold – first she announced her return to Twitter. Then she revealed that her song ‘Lay Your Head Down’ has been named as one of 39 songs eligible for the Oscars courtesy of the Irish movie Albert Nobbs.

“I am making my glorious return to Twitter, purely for the purposes of fun and gigglement,” said O’Connor.

The news came after dramatic revelations concerning the end of her marriage to addiction counsellor Herridge after just 16 days.

O’Connor had confirmed that she went looking for marijuana and ended up almost buying crack cocaine just minutes after their wedding ceremony in Las Vegas.

The Nothing Compares 2U singer confirmed that her new husband was ‘enormously wounded’ by her search for drugs in less salubrious parts of Vegas.

The marriage lasted just 16 days and they lived together for only seven.

Newspaper reports on Friday said that O’Connor was spotted shopping for presents in Bray on Christmas Eve with her former partner Frank Bonadio, father of her fourth child and the former husband of singer Mary Coughlan.
