Tributes have been paid to legendary Irish singer Fergus O'Farrell, who has passed away at the age of 48.

O'Farrell had fronted Cork band Interference since 1984.

The band, best known for the track Gold from the film Once, formed in Clongowes Wood College boarding school in Co Kildare.

The group announced the passing of their frontman tonight via their Facebook page.

"It is with profound sadness we announce the passing today of Fergus," read the post.

"A full statement will follow, and we'd ask that the family be allowed privacy at this incredibly difficult time.

"Thank you for all your messages... all will be passed on to his family in due course."
