The traditional Irish tune was covered by Thin Lizzy in 1973 - and Metallica, who also covered the track on their Garage Inc album in 1998, dedicated the performance to late Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott.

Her book, My Boy, written with Jackie Hayden, was a two-time number one best-seller and told her own extraordinary life story. Niall Stokes, the Editor of Hot Press, said: "She was a formidable and brilliant woman". "I am really proud that we were able to participate in telling her remarkable story".

"She was indeed a remarkable woman".

After school, Philomena moved from Dublin to England to work.

Phil came to Dublin while still a young boy and went on to become one of Ireland's most revered songwriters and musicians.

Philomena Lynott was heavily involved in a campaign to have a life-size statue of her son erected in Dublin, which has been situated - barring a few temporary disappearances - on Harry Street in Dublin, outside Bruxelles pub, since 2005.
