Ah this is Rory's mum house in Coolfada, Douglas, Cork. I get it confused with his mothers house at Greenbanks. Green banks was demolished for a new housing development. Hope this house in Coolfada does not share the same fate! It has not changed that much in 41 years. since Rory did his 1977 interview there. It is a pretty property indeed. Subrata.x

Here is the link of where Rory lived between concerts and its shows pictures of him living at Coolfada, which was a hotel at some point?

And the house features in the Macroom 1978 you tube video:-

Yes thanks Zanny for posting and a warm welcome to the LT family. If there is a Rory fan millionaire out there, yeah please buy the house and preserve it for us fans to visit. Subrata. :0). In fact I would say that for all the properties that Rory lived in both in Cork, London and I believe he had a property in New York? Subrata . :0)

If I was wealthy, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Alas, I am not wealthy.

Same thoughts here Cynthia for me. Especially now I've just retired from work also..
It would be the perfect place to retire to. Plus it would be going back to my old family heritage...
" Going To My Hometown and mother country "... If only I had a spare million pounds but alas more like " A Million Miles Away " unfortunately for this poor pensioner :(

Still "Rockin On for Rory" though and can just about afford this coming weekend.. Friday night Sinnerboy @ The Musician Leicester and The Rory Festival @ Nantwich the weekend :) :)

Rock On for Rory

:D Count your blessings, Jay Jay- so many of these great shows are within your reach- It's pretty hard to get from here to there for me. But I think on it quite a bit.
