“She had tremendous respect for Demi and thought Niamh was a real rising star after seeing her on her TV series The Virtues.

“SinĂ©ad also found Saoirse fierce and loved her from her 2015 film Brooklyn in which she played an Irish migrant.”

The source explained that when exploring initial concepts for the film, Sinead liked the idea of ​​a “triptych approach” and envisioned a film that would showcase three different actresses.

They added that this creative direction playfully alluded to the Catholic Church’s symbolic trinity of father, son, and the Holy Spirit, adding a touch of satire to the story.

According to the publication, SinĂ©ad’s management company had planned an album and tour, as well as the biopic.

More than 3,000 people gathered in her hometown to mourn the star with sobs as they sang “Nothing Compares to U” in a touching final farewell following her sudden death in London last month.

SinĂ©ad’s eulogy said she “suffered more than her share of hardship and adversity.”

Imam Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri added, “Gifted with a voice that moved a generation of young people, she could bring listeners to tears through her otherworldly resonance.

‘SinĂ©ad’s voice had an undertone of hope, of finding the way home.

“The Irish people have long found comfort in singing the sufferings of this lower abode, and SinĂ©ad was no exception, and in sharing that comfort she brought joy to countless people all over the world.”

SinĂ©ad – who struggled with her mental health for years – rose to fame in 1990 after her cover of the then-unreleased Prince song from Nothing Compares 2 U.

On Friday, John van Jedward paid a touching tribute to the fellow Irish star with an emotional cover of the song.
