“I’m really thrilled that the exhibition has become a reality,” Lynott’s mother, Philomena Lynott, told the Irish Times
“There is a huge feeling of goodwill out there towards Philip and so I think this is going to be an inspiring event for all of the Irish people who loved my son and his music. I’m really looking forward to it.”
