PHIL LYNOTT - Mystery Donor To Pay For Damaged Statue In Dublin
According to Independent.ie,
a mystery donor has come forward to pay to repair the landmark statue
of THIN LIZZY
legend Phil Lynott,
which was knocked from its plinth on
Harry Street in Dublin earlier this month.
The donation has been made by a third party on behalf of the two
individuals responsible for the damage to the statue, who presented
themselves to gardai in Pearse Street the day after the incident.
The cost of repairs to the statue, sculpted by artist Paul Daly, is said to be around €4,000.
Dublin City Council would only confirm that they would not be paying
the cost of the repairs and that the statue would soon be back in
“Dublin City Council is making arrangements for the statue to be reinstated in its original location in the coming weeks.
“The council will not be bearing the cost of repairs to the statue,” a Dublin City Council Spokesman told the Herald.
Phil Lynott's mother, Philomena, told the Herald last night that
news that a mystery donor had come forward to pay for the statue was
“the best thing she had ever heard.”
