During Metallica's June 8 concert at Slane Castle in Meath, Ireland, the band performed their version of "Whiskey in the Jar", dedicating it to Phil Lynott, the late frontman of Irish hard rock legends Thin Lizzy.

She passed away on Wednesday morning, Hot Press magazine has confirmed, after battling cancer for the past number of years.

Philomena came to national prominence when she published her book, which was written with Jackie Hayden, and was a two-time No.1 best seller and told her extraordinary life story.

She departed Dublin to work in England after leaving school, but her plans were forever changed when she became pregnant with Phil, whose father was Cecil Parris, from Guyana.

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.
