Quote="Faylool "Hmmmm. 5’9” me if wearing 1 1/2” heels here and then.....? I’m convinced it’s just the position of his statue makes him look a little small and a little narrow. It’s art so... my only complaint about the tribute statue."

Nice pics thanks for posting Faylool.
As I've stated and been asked before about the height of the statue of Rory in Ballyshannon. I'm 6 feet (183cm) tall flat footed.
You are standing forward of the Rory Statue plus the camera angle is giving a false impression of it's height.
Mine is a better example of the height of the statue as I'm almost level with it or slightly behind.

My photo was taken just after the statue was unveiled in 2010 . Look at the difference in colour of the bronze statue after 9 years.

Rock On for Rory

True...angle and yes the darkening! Makes look a little more diminutive...if I can return I’ll stand behind hiding me mostly and get the better angle!

Yeah me too Sid... With this pandemic coronavirus upon us worldwide the 4 day Rory Fest in Ballyshannon has been moved forward to the last weekend in August. Let’s hope this pandemic has cleared up by then?

Is this still going ahead? Will the pubs be open or will it just be the open air stages plus the Big Top? I have my accommodation booked but haven't decided yet whether I consider it safe for me to go (personal opinion here & absolutely no reflection on anyone else's decision)
