Just park on the street and get your selfie with Rory in the center of town. Street parking is hit or miss but it's a landmark.

Spent a short time in this historic old town. The statue is easy to find as the town centre is very small.

Very cute town and a quick stop to see this statue was perfect. Nothing open on Sunday here. The statue is easy to locate, park and take a picture.

Rory Gallagher’s statue is great we walked up the hill to his birth place. It most have been the hospital he was born, it’s looks like nursing home when we got there.
