A tasteful memory to an all time great, appropriate monument to one of Ireland’s greatest musicians, very tastefully done

Finally got to this wonderful spot today with Papa Smurff! Delighted to find it so easily. It’s on RORY Gallagher Place not far off Paul’s Street!

Every student and their mother hang out here. A buzzing meeting point at Paul St Shopping Centre. Small cobblestoned square but so much to see/do here - food, shoes, books, cafe's, ---- and thats all outside the main Shopping centre.

Tribute statue to Rory Gallagher a wonderful guitarist brought up in Cork. As a big fan I had to visit this. Also plaque on wall Rory Gallagher Place. Would imagine the little square would be quite busy with people sitting out in summer time.

It is always nice to pass through Rory Gallagher Place. It is full of the city going and coming. Over in one corner you will have music, the other corner people praying or as they call it prophesying. I love it

City council has done its best - Rory Gallagher was after all a son of the city of Cork & while his talent was phenomenal & his premature death very sad, this area while OK is nevertheless sadly quite seedy & scruffy - it's the oldest & perhaps the most historic part of this city & should be marketed as such but instead it gives the feeling of being quite run down - which it isn't, given the footfall in the surrounding shops.....

In 1997 Paul Street Plaza was renamed as Rory Gallagher Place and a memorial sculpture was unveiled. The sculpture, by Geraldine Creedon, takes the form of a guitar on one side, while the other side consists of intertwined lyrics from Rory's Jinx album.

Unfortunately the sculpture and the location fail to excite and strikes me as being little more than a box ticking exercise. If you are a real fan you can visit but you may be disappointed and if you are not a fan you will not really notice the memorial.

if you want to visit here because of Rory, don't bother. There is absolutely nothing at all to commemorate him save a plaque denoting the location. On one side there it a TESCO shop with some food joints on the other. The 'plaza' itself, is occupied by hoodies, junkies, shoppers and all others who have no interest in either music or Rory.

As a long time Rorry Gallagher fan touring Ireland for the first time, I had to find this monument in the heart of the city!! Very moving trip as I walked in his footsteps and later found his gravesite!
