This is so great! Now we have more stops for our Rory walking tour.

Somewhere I recall Donal saying one of the London houses Rory lived in had rock credentials - maybe Dusty Springfield, Elton John or such had lived there too? I really should start keeping track of all of this. Anybody remember that statement?

Found it: http://shadowplays.com/blog/?p=708 Also a fascinating interview with Donal.

Maybe one of the places, looks like it's been cut into flats but you get a bit of a feel for it. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-to- ... 82810.html

Seems I had heard that it had been Mick Jagger's, but there is a Mick/Dusty Springfield connection there, anyway.

Hi, Everyone,
I asked one of Rory's old friends about Rory's homes in Cork after McCurtain Street. The result: 1 Sydney Park, Wellington Road (Irish Tour), 2 'Coolfadda' Douglas Rd, 3 'Greenbanks' Well Rd Douglas. The latter doesn't exist anymore because after his mother's passing it was sold to a property developer and it was demolished. Now it's a building area. I hope it helps.
