Ms Lynott passed away early after battling cancer for a number of years, it was confirmed this morning. Philomena Lynott, mother of late rock star Phil Lynott, polishes his black bass guitar at the Irish Rock ’N’ Roll Museum at The Button Factory in Dublin’s Temple Bar. In February 2018, Ms Lynott was chosen by the national wax museum to have a statue made of her. Ms Lynott has said it is emotional to think she is immortalised beside her son. Ms Lynott was a key figure in getting a bronze statue of Phil Lynott constructed in Dublin in 2005 and has helped keep his legacy alive.
