Just heard the very sad news that Philomena Lynott has passed away. A beautiful lady who endured a lot in her life but made the best of everything and was loved by all who met her. She will be very sadly missed. Rest In Peace Philomena. From Scott: ‘It is with great sadness that we have learned today that Philip's mum, Philomena Lynott, has passed away. She was always a great supporter of Thin Lizzy from the early days, throughout the band's existence and beyond. She always did her best to keep Phil's flame alive over the years, opening up her home to thousands of fans from around the world who paid her a visit. RIP Phyllis- we'll miss you.’ SG
