Generous Sinead O'Connor is planning to donate decades worth of clothes and make-up to Ireland's transgender youth.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer explained that she has put on some weight recently and is doing a wardrobe clear-out.

She said that she wants her stuff to help those who identify as transgender to express themselves

Sinead (50) said in a Facebook post: "This is a message for Ireland's transgender youth.

"I have recently relocated from Ireland to America as has my size from ten to somewhere between twelve and thirteen. As has any desire I ever had to be porked, to outer space.

"Therefore I wish to donate my 30 yrs worth of gorgeous and ordinary clothing and (unused) make-up to an Irish organization which provides clothing and make up for those youth (over 16) born 'legally' male who wish to enjoy being female.

"But I know not of such an organization in Ireland. If there is one, could someone post it's contact info here Please?"

The mum-of-four added: "If not, can we discuss over the course of time, the need for 'Clothes Libraries' in Ireland for such youth?

"Also for those born 'legally' female who wish to enjoy being male.

"There's an awful lot of clothing all over the world going to waste."
