The priest who conducted the funeral of Philomena Lynott in Dublin joked that THIN LIZZY icon Phil Lynott would sing 
Guess who just got back today” to her – the opening line from his band's hit single 'The Boys Are Back in Town' – when they met in heaven.
Philomena died last week, at age 88, after opting to refuse chemotherapy for terminal cancer. She’d said her farewells to her friends over the previous weeks. She was laid to rest in the graveyard of St. Fintan’s Church – the location of Phil's grave. Crowds lined the streets of Dublin earlier today as her body was taken in procession in a horse-drawn hearse. 

Among the tributes was a large bouquet of flowers from U2, signed simply “Bono, The Edge, Larry & Adam.”
