Irish singer Sinead O'connor is considering a move to Jamaica after falling in love with the Rastafarians she met there while recording her new reggae album THROW DOWN YOUR ARMS.

The NOTHING COMPARES 2 U singer reveals she sobs every time she leaves the Caribbean island now, and pines for her island friends to join her in Dublin, Ireland.

Writing in America's Flaunt magazine, O'Connor explains, "I love Jamaica so bad. The people there are magical - so gentle and beautiful. There's a spirituality there of all kinds... I hate leaving the place and the friends I have there now.

"I love them so much and miss them bad, as there aren't any Rastas in Dublin. I would love it if some would move right near me. But it's f**king freezing in Ireland. So Granny's gonna have to get a place in Jamaica."
