Statue of Thin Lizzy Legend Phil Lynott Vandalized
The memorial to the Thin Lizzy icon has been removed from its Harry Street location for repairs, and the men were later released without charge.
The life-size bronze sculpture was unveiled in 2005 in front of his mother Philomena and Lizzy men Scott Gorham, Brian Downey, Eric Bell, Darron Wharton, Brian Robertson and the late Gary Moore. It's become a tourist destination and landmark since then.
In the early hours of Friday morning Garda officers attended the scene to find the statue knocked over and a large tear in its side. Two men later reported to a police station, were placed under arrest then released without charge. more on this story
