Sinead O’Connor dons traditional hijab after conversion to Islam

Singing sensation Sinead O'Connor appeared on Ireland's The Late Late Show yesterday evening in traditional religious Islamic dress.

The 52 year old singer wore a red abaya – a robe-like over garment – with a hijab to match. A hijab is a head covering worn by many Muslim women.

Earlier in the day, she appeared more casually dressed as she arrived at the studios, in blue trousers, shirt and cardigan, along with a matching head scarf.

She was accompanied by son Shane Lunny, 15, who looks the spitting image of his mum.

The lad, who Sinead shares with musician Donal Lunny, carried his mum's abaya into the studios for her.

His shaved head means he looks even more his mother's son.

Sinead also has Jake, 32, Roisin, 23 and Yeshua, 12, all to different fathers.

In October last year, Sinead announced she had found faith in the religion of Islam and changed her name to Shuhada Davitt.
