Mum of rock legend Lynott laid to rest in Dublin
Irish filmmaker Jim Sheridan has said he would like to make a film about the life of Phil Lynott and his "strong" mother Philomena.
He was among mourners at the 88-year-old's funeral held in St Fintan's Church in Sutton, Dublin, yesterday.
"It feels like the end of a story. I'd love to see a movie being made. I would make it, there was a lot of talk about it and we are still talking about it," he said.
Ms Lynott was remembered as a "force of nature" at the funeral Mass. She passed away last Wednesday after a battle with cancer.
The Mass was celebrated by Fr Bryan Shortall, a friend of Philomena's from the Capuchin Order. Her coffin was brought to the seaside church in a carriage pulled by two white horses.
The coffin was brought out of the church as Thin Lizzy's Philomena played, and a round of applause erupted as the lyrics, "If you see my mother please give her all of my love, as she has a heart of gold there as good as God above" rang through the church. Burial took place in St Fintan's cemetery.
