PHIL LYNOTT's Mother Attends Tribute Concert

Mark Foster of The Northern Echo reports: The mother of tragic singer-songwriter Phil Lynott journeyed to Richmond from her Dublin home over the weekend to attend a tribute concert to her son, the front-man of legendary band THIN LIZZY, who died 21 years ago.

And her verdict on the show by Irish rockers GLIDER was one of complete approval: "It was fantastic. Everybody was up and dancing. All I can say is that Richmond rocked."

Philomena Lynott, 76, was the special guest of THIN LIZZY fans John Russell and Keith Barker who both live in Richmond and organised the concert at Richmondshire Cricket Club.

The event was a complete sell-out with more than 200 tickets sold. "If we'd had space we'd have been able to sell twice that many," said John.
