Well! What can you say to describe what was another super and fabulous Rory Gallagher International Festival :)
Firstly, as always we have to thank all involved in the operations / workings of the festival. Especially Barry O'Neill and the festival committee and organisers, that managed the whole four days of entertainment terrifically :)
Secondly.. ALL of the fantastic bands and artists that performed this year.
Thirdly... ALL of RORY'S wonderful dedicated fans that came from all over the world to respect and celebrate the life and music of our beloved hero :)

There were quite a few highlights for me from this years Rory Fest. I'll point out one of these for a drummer/musician for years myself which stood out.. Seeing John Wilson one of my musical heroes on the Friday night in the marquee. With his "Taste of Rory" they were absolutely technically awesome :) Especially with John after all the life threatening health problems over the past few years. Looking at him from quite a distance from the stage. He looked and played like a 20 year old. AMAZING! I'd like to thank John and his band for his and their great performance. Also for his kind and respectful words he said for Rory with the time they spent together with Taste. On the other side of the coin I must say. Thoughts went through my head while watching John's fantastic drumming. What he and Rory could have achieved and done, if only they had gone on and stayed together?

Looking forward to hearing first timers and everybody's thoughts and reviews of the RG International fest here please

Rock On for Rory
Slainte, Jay Jay
