Phil Lynott’s mother Philomena dies at 88

Philomena Lynott, the mother of legendary Thin Lizzy leader Phil Lynott, passed away on the morning of June 12, Wednesday at the age of 88, after years of battle with cancer.


The information was confirmed by the Hot Press magazine, which worked with Philomena in the book “My Boy”, which tells the life of the legendary musician.

“She was a formidable and brilliant woman,” Hot Press editor Niall Stokes said. “I’m very proud to be able to tell her remarkable story, because she was indeed a remarkable woman.”

He added, “She was extremely determined and courageous – and absolutely committed to the campaign to ensure that Philip’s memory was kept alive and his legacy celebrated.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
