A flight attendant who was caught up in an alleged air rage incident five years ago, in which Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan was removed from a plane, is continuing with a damages claim against the late singer's estate.

Carmel Coyne, from Cappagh Road in Galway, is also suing Aer Lingus over the November 2014 incident in the proceedings, which were initiated in early 2017.

Her lawyers asked the High Court for orders changing the title of the case to allow it to be brought against the personal representatives of the singer's estate.

Barrister Tadhg Dorgan for Ms Coyne told the court that the representatives were consenting to the amendment order.

Mr Justice Charles Meenan granted the order replacing Ms O'Riordan's name with those of the personal representatives.

The court heard the case arose out of an incident on 10 November 2014 when Ms Coyne was a senior cabin crew member on an Aer Lingus flight from New York to Shannon.

It is alleged that Ms O'Riordan, who was a passenger, deliberately caused injury to Ms Coyne by stamping on her foot and physically attacking her and by restricting her liberty and/or freedom of movement.

Ms Coyne claimed damages for alleged assault, battery, false imprisonment, breach of her right to privacy and right to earn a living. 

It is claimed Ms Coyne was out of work for seven months.

Ms O'Riordan had denied the claims.

She was found dead in the bathroom of her hotel room in London in January last year.
