January 4 2021 will mark the 25th anniversary of the iconic Irish singer’s death from pneumonia and heart failure due to septicaemia after being hospitalised with serious drug addiction issues.
Lynott’s uncle, Peter Lynott, was the guest of honour at the unveiling, which was attended by a small gathering of friends and those who worked closely tie to the late musician.
“It’s absolutely fantastic. What a tribute to a great man, a very humble man,” Peter Lynott told the Irish Independent.
“Who would have thought 65 years ago when Philo and I were reading comics on the bedroom floor, that a plaque would be going up outside this very house?”.
He was joined by filmmaker Emer Reynolds, whose upcoming Phil Lynott documentary Songs for While I’m Away is due to be on St Stephen’s Day.
