I'd love to read more about your original views on the matter.
They just said they don't "think" that happens. What's wrong with that?

RIP Philomena.

I hope they’re somewhere together.

Well having nothing to do with her children/grandchildren isn't great form.

He was probably the oldest. I seem to remember that his dad used to pay maintenance.

A marvelous, beautiful lady. My late mother, who had scarce hair as she aged, wanted to know what she did to keep that supreme head of hair. She became more beautiful as she aged.

Jealousy can be a cruel bedfellow.

May she rest in peace.
if you attended the concert in the point on the weekend they unveiled the statue of Phil you might see why , the concert in my opinion was about Gary Moore as he seemed to play far more than the other band members, and a life long friend of Phil's was told to come if he wanted to but not to bring anyone with him he just about got to sing one song. iI don't think she had anything to be jealous of.

She was living in England at the time, Phil was sent back to Dublin to his grandparents to be raised. She had 2 more kids then, they were put up for adoption. She didn't raise any of them, she never really had a mothers role with Phil.

I'm assuming one child was all the grandparents could handle and the other two had to be put up for adoption.

Phil himself had a child with who was put up for adoption.

Read an article a while back which seems to indicate she had Phil in the U.K and kept him. She then had a daughter by the same father as Phil’s but she was given up for adoption as the parents then split. The father of both children alleges he wanted to marry her but she didn’t want to. She had a further son 2 years later. I’m unclear as that what point Phil was sent to Dublin to life with her parents.

Her other two children were put up for adoption, I thought. If that’s the case, why would she see them? I don’t know whether she saw her grandchildren from Phil.

Yellow Pearl and Old Town were very good and an interesting departure from the Lizzy stuff but it does look like his career had stalled by the time he passed away (apparently the drug addiction was causing havoc for him and interfering with his music projects).

its a bit disappointing how the accusatory tone of this thread, especially in the circumstances seems to be on the verge of drowning out any notion of compassion, understanding, respect or kindness. When nobody here knew the woman or the inner machinations of her existence especially and the mindset and experiences that led her to make her choices all those years ago.

To have walked a mile in her shoes, and all that..
