Sinead O'Connor reunited with 'caveman' husband

By Ken Sweeney

Sinead O'Connor last night declared herself "one happy girl" after announcing she had reunited with her husband Barry Herridge.

The 45-year-old enjoyed a coffee with the drug counsellor near her home in Bray before they joined forces for that most domestic of chores -- bringing in the bins.

"I'm one happy girl. Myself and Barry are back together," a delighted Sinead said.

The couple had been together for just 16 days after marrying in Las Vegas on December 8.

Sinead had likened the marriage to "living in a coffin for both of us" and claimed it had been sabotaged by the "interference of certain people".

Insiders had suggested a re-union had always been a possibility.

Yesterday, Sinead told the world via the internet how "her caveman had come around to get her" and how she had spent a "beautiful evening" with Mr Herridge (38) at her home.

She wrote on the social media site Twitter: "Guess who had a mad love-making affair with her own husband last night?"

The soundtrack to the evening was the song 'Come Here' by singer Kath Bloom, taken from the film 'Before Sunset', which was also played at their wedding service.

"It's mine and Barry's song, our song, and always makes me cry," said Sinead.

Key to the reunion is said to be the couple's decision not to move in together but to continue to lead their own lives with the singer promoting a new album next month, and Mr Herridge (38) a drug counsellor working with teenagers in Dublin city centre.

"We decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend again and stay married but we did rush so we gonna return to boyfriend and girlfriend," said Sinead.

However, the reunited couple had scarcely 24 hours to be together, with O'Connor jetting out to Los Angeles today to attend the launch of the soundtrack to film 'Albert Nobbs'.

The highlight of the evening at the Palihouse in West Hollywood, will be a performance by Sinead of song 'Lay Your Head Down', which has been nominated for a Golden Globe in the 'Best Original Song' category.
