Writing in the Sunday Independent four weeks later, Sinead O’Connor responded to comments by Irish columnists about her latest marriage. “The craven extent of the abuse concerning my marriage was... an all-time low, even for some of the bottom-dwelling rags whose wont is to abuse”, she wrote. “Not one writer of the abuse had the courage to contact me and state their abuse to my face, despite the fact that until two days ago, every paper in the country had my phone number, and had no qualms about calling me in the past regarding other matters.” She offered the following reasons for the columnists’ comments: “One: Those papers were angry they didn’t know anything about the wedding. “Two: They never will. “Three: I am fantastically talented. “Four: I have a fantastic arse. Which has been responsible for the conception of my four lovely children, by four lovely men. By the presence in my life of those beautiful children and their four beautiful fathers, I am honoured and proud. “Five: I am a woman who does not box herself in and play by the rules dictated by patriarchal society or patriarchal newspapers for women to play. Why is it that male editors get women journalists to attack another woman? And more importantly, why do these women do it? How would any of these editors feel if it was their daughters or sisters who were the subject of such craven insults? “My non-cooperation with the ‘rules’ results in a lot of female journalists becoming ravingly jealous of me, because they have taken no for an answer, and take orders from male editors to destroy other women. “In short, they envy my freedom, my courage, my talent, and my arse. “These writers are a disgrace to their parents, who most likely worked their fingers to the bone so that their children could go to school and college”, she added.
