It would be very helpful if all the artists who have been positively influenced by Rory would step up and get involved. Would be nice to see more of them getting involved, perhaps even promoting or sponsoring Rory's festival in Ballyshannon, or in Cork.

At or near the Ulster Hall in Belfast is the suggested place. Where Rory Gallagher was the only musician who continued to play.. regardless of all the troubles in the passed in the North of Ireland

Donal Gallagher was given a prototype of the proposed Rory Statue last weekend at the Wilgar Rock n' Blues Festival in Belfast.
Hopefully this will be erected outside the Ulster Hall, sometime in the not too distant future.

Rock On for Rory

is going to be modeled on this picture from the front cover page of the Melody Maker in January 1972
Taken at the Ulster Hall :)

IMHO this is a well deserved hommage

As Roy Hollingworth from Melody Maker wrote :

"I've never seen anything quite so wonderful, so stirring, so uplifting, so joyous as when Gallagher and the band walked on stage. The whole place erupted, they all stood and they cheered and they yelled, and screamed, and they put their arms up, and they embraced. Then as one unit they put their arms into the air and gave peace signs. Without being silly, or overemotional, it was one of the most memorable moments of my life. It all meant something, it meant more than just rock n' roll, it was something bigger, something more valid than just that."
