O’Connor calls on Gallaghers to make up, claims Noel once proposed

And Finally

Sinead O'Connor

Sinead O’Connor has claimed that Noel Gallagher, in a drunken stupor back at the height of his Oasis days, once proposed to her at a festival. The Irish singer makes the claim in an interview with Uncut magazine, when answering a question apparently submitted by Liam Gallagher.

The Beady Eye frontman’s mini-missive to O’Connor read: “You’ve always been effortlessly cool. How do you manage that?” O’Connor replied: “Oh, that’s sweet. I’ve never seen myself as cool, but I’m flattered. Actually, Liam’s brother Noel once asked me to marry him, just before he married Meg Mathews. He won’t remember, as he was off his face at a festival in Amsterdam”.

The singer continues by calling on the estranged Gallagher brothers to bury the hatchet, if only to please their mum. O’Connor: “I am so glad to hear from Liam because I, as a mammy, am not happy that him and his brother aren’t getting along well, and their poor mammy must be very upset. Tell Liam I love him and his brother and I’d like them to get on with each other. Do it for mammy’s sake, yer feckers!”
