Seemed to be a lovely woman who lived the latter half of her life through Phil. I never knew whether that was a good or a bad thing. RIP

A wonderful lady with more energy than most half her age. She'll be greatly missed.

She was a great character. Met her in Tullamore some years ago. RIP Philomena.

She had a strong dislike of Gary Moore too for some reason which I found unnecessary.

Maybe it was because he was a far superior musician to Phil.
Jealousy can be a cruel bedfellow.

May she rest in peace.

Not really, there wasn't a peep out of her when Gary Moore passed.

Has Metallica gone home yet? Sure the removal will probably be tomorrow evening, they might hang around for it!

I gotta be honest (and I hope folks'll be honest too when I go into the earth too) but I thought she was a horrible person.

She always promoted Phil, and for many, many years she spoke of being a single mother to Phil, and how difficult it was...

Never mentioned she had 2 other children who are still alive, a boy and a girl. Nor did she mention Phil was only told of one sibling, and not the other. (Phil's Sister shares a father with him, but the son is from a different relationship). Nor did she mention she never visited her grandkids, and didn't have a relationship with them.

And there was no mention of her other children in many obituaries... all about Phil. Probably the way she wanted it.

Cruel woman.

What a ridiculous comment this is. God help that the poor woman reminisced about a son she adored was taken from her too early.

R.I.P.

A bit of a coincidence but I just bought a biography on Phil Lynott today.
