STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU: THE PHILIP LYNOTT EXHIBITION
The Philip Lynott Exhibition, which was originally set to end its run on April 4, will now be open to visitors for an extra month. The exhibition, which has been garnering rave reviews, will run until Monday May 2.
Rock enthusiasts, music fans, tourists, schools and families have all flocked to the critically acclaimed exhibition to honour Philip Lynott. There they’ve been able to view the biggest ever collection of memorabilia, song lyrics, exhibits, paintings, tributes and photographs of the late rock legend. Now, due to popular demand, the Exhibition is extending its run by a further 4 weeks. 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the death of the Thin Lizzy singer and the exhibition gives a unique insight into the background, work and life of Ireland’s pioneering rock star. The Creative Space at the top of Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre – which was custom built and took 3 months to construct – plays host to the exhibition. In what is a remarkable reflection of the renewed interest in Philip Lynott and his background, the newly updated My Boy by Philomena Lynott has been selling exceptionally well, holding down the No. 2 spot in the Non Fiction Paperback best-sellers in Ireland for the past three weeks. In it, Philomena Lynott, for the first time, tells the astonishing story of Philip’s sister Jeanette and his brother Leslie, who were given up for adoption in the early 1950s. The Philip Lynott Exhibition is open daily. For more see www.philiplynottexhibition.com
