Rory Gallagher

Rory Gallagher is arguably Cork's most famous musical export selling over 30 million albums worldwide. Jimi Henrix is said to have hailed Rory as the best guitarist in the world - his mind-blowing blues solos as good as anything the legedary Seattle rock guitarist could produce at the time. 

Corkonians are immensely proud of Rory's legacy naming a square in the city centre 'Rory Gallagher Place' in his memory. 
Cork City Library on Grand Parade also exhibits one of Rory's guitars in a glass case which is a must-see for fans.
