MY TRIP TO CORK, IRELAND, JULY 2012

Postby SUBY1974 » 30 Jul 2012, 20:59

Here are my pictures of my visit to Cork, Ireland this month. I will describe my trip later. Enjoy! Subrata.x

http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/7803 ... 007613.jpg Savoy where Rory saw the Rolling Stones and played.

http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/7074/i ... 007831.jpg Pub featured in Irish Tour 1974 DVD where everyone had a beer.

http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/4396 ... 007562.jpg St Patricks Bridge with River Lee. Maybe the bridge Rory crossed on Irish Irish Tour 1974
http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6945 ... 483268.jpg St Patricks Hill. In the Irish Examiner of 1974 Rory is pictured climbing this hill. So little has changed since the 70's.

http://img854.imageshack.us/img854/1350 ... 007911.jpg Rory Gallagher Music Library.

http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/6945/3 ... 483268.jpg Tribute Rory Strat and a mag on Rory from 1987 beside it. I love the starlight effect behind the Strat made by my Blackberry flash. Only discovered it afterwards. Nice library!

Nice travel, Suby!

Hey, tell me by PM all the way you're doing with your pictures. They're too small as usually. I can help you to storage them from your device without white borders!

I can't understand what kind of source of your fotos! Are you re-sho0ting them all from the screen of your PC?

No no... these 23 e-mails you've just sent to public email ( loose talk email is not mine email. See my in my profile )... I just wish to help you to re-upload them all again but do it correctly.

You have sent pictures with 640x 480 resolution. What did you exactly do for such conversation? Original pics are the same size or bigger? What's the name of your photo camera?

All picture uploaded. Just click to make bigger. I will talk about the trip soon. I hope Rory fans enjoy the pictures. Cork is so worth a visit. Next year Ballyshannon and the Rory Gallagher Festival for me and also Cork! I love to go every year now. Its a bit like a pilgrimage now. Subrata. x

Hello Suby,
All very nice photos. Re the Father Matthew statue- I had read that quote, Rory when asked who would be the first and last persons he would invite to a party (first being Mel Brooks- good choice for a life of the party kinda guy). Was Fr. Matthew one of the people who physically punished Rory when he found out that Rory was playing guitar in the Fontana Showband?

OK if I copy your photos? One day I would like to see those places, hopefully within a year, and those will help me find my way around. And I'd like to visit him in St. Oliver's. It's on my bucket list.
