Hi Kev, yes the "Meeting Place / Rory Gallagher Bar" In Middleton Co Cork closed down in 2003. I took a visit down there that year at end of May. Just before going up to Ballyshannon Co Donegal for the first ever 3 day International Rory Gallagher Festival. Was totally shocked & surprised when I found out when speaking to Barry Barnes (Sinnerboy) outside the building. That Tony Moore (owner) had took out all his Rory Memorabilia and vacated the Meeting Place premises :(

This http://www.rorygallagher.com forum was previous called The "Meeting Place" after Tony's Meeting Place.. Yes it was probably the first venue of any real note in Ireland to stage Rory Gallagher tribute bands on a regular basis, from all over Europe. Rory fans came from all over the world to visit there. Before "The Rory Fest" Ballyshannon and "Cork Rocks for Rory" took over somewhat, since those early days of RG Tribute bands /artists :)

Rock On for Rory

My son and I toured the area in 2013 and we stopped in after visiting the Jameson facility.
I saw some photos of Rory but no other memorabilia.
This was 2013, did something change in those ten years?
