The tweet comes just days after the singer tweeted and then deleted a message detailing plans for five upcoming shows in Ireland.
O’Connor initially tweeted out plans to perform in Dublin, Cork Belfast, Waterford and Galway next summer.
However, just as fans began responding to the tweet with excitement at the prospect of seeing the Irish music legend in the flesh, it was deleted.
Several fans succeeded in taking a screenshot of the message before it was removed.
There are, as yet, no confirmed plans for any Ireland gigs.
O’Connor is currently confirmed to perform a string of dates across Europe, the US and Canada.
Those plans could be subject to change.
