The Script’s guitarist, Mark Sheehan dies after a brief illness. The President of Ireland has led tributes to Sheehan with The Script members after his demise.
The band shared with the media that Mark Sheehan died in the hospital after suffering a brief illness on Friday (April 14). The members called him a “much-loved husband, father, brother, band mate and friend.”
The script was formed back in 2001 by Singer Danny O’ Donoghue, Glen Power, the drummer and Mark Sheehan, the lead guitarist. The band topped the Irish and UK charts in 2008 with its self-titled debut album 2008. The album had some chartbuster tracks like ‘Breakeven’, ‘The Man who can’t be moved’, and ‘Cry’. ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’ reached the position of number 1 in five countries.
The pop-infused rock nature of the band made it one of the biggest bands in Ireland in the 2010s. The Script had six Top 10 albums in the United Kingdom, whereas in the USA it had three albums.
The Irish president praised the band for their “originality and excellence”. He further sent the heartiest condolence to Sheehan’s family members.
The Irish president said, “Through their music, Mark and The Script have played an outstanding part in continuing and promoting this proud tradition of Irish musical success across the world.”
Sheehan lived by his wife Rina Sheehan and their three children. His family has not spoken anything about his death yet.
