The Thin Lizzy legend is to be immortalised in a bronze statue on Dublin's predestrian shopping street
August 19 promises to be a red letter day for Philip Lynott aficionados as a lifesize bronze statue of the legendary Thin Lizzy man is unveiled in Dublin’s Grafton Street.
A joint initiative between Dublin City Council and the Roisin Dubh Trust, the early evening ceremony will be followed by a ticket-only celebration, which is expected to attract Philo fans from all over the world.
The festivities take place on the eve of what would have been his 56th birthday, and the street where he shot the famous ‘Old Town’ video.
