Philomena Lynott has died.
The mother of Thin Lizzy's Phil Lynott passed away overnight at her home in Sutton, North Dublin after battling cancer.
Ms. Lynott is being remembered as a very glamorous and "rock and roll" woman.
The 88 year old carried on her son's legacy after he died in 1986- she succeeded in her campaign to have a statue of her son erected in Dublin.
That statue is located just off Grafton Street.
