RORY PLAQUE @ ULSTER HALL ?

Have they took the Rory Gallagher Plaque down at the Ulster Hall in Belfast?
Recent pictures I've seen suggest they have after a refurbishment there?

It would be so sad if they don't put it back up after all those concerts Rory played there throughout the troubles :(

They could have hung it back up inside the Ulster Hall building..

Barry Mcgivern and Dino McGartland, any Rory fans in the North of Ireland, do you know?

As I can see there's some works with buildings. But I'm not sure in wich year was taken this by Google Maps.

They have put the Rory Plaque just inside I think?

That's right Jay Jay, after the refurbishment a couple of years ago the plaque was removed from the outside wall of the Hall to the inside porch, before you enter the foyer. Ruby Murray, a Northern Ireland singer, has her plaque hanging on the left hand wall as you enter and Rory's plaque is placed on right hand side. I think, if I remember rightly, the plaque is blue in colour (not 100% sure on that, as it is over a year since I passed by the Ulster Hall). Next time I'm in Belfast, I will check up on that one, although the plaque does look a different colour in the photograph above. Incidentally, there is mention of Rory on Ruby Murray's official website. Rosemarie

Thanks Rosemarie for confirming this :D

It should be put back in its original place in my opinion.... after all that Rory did for Belfast in the early seventies.
I had a fantastic night when they put it up on 29th December 2006...... wonderfull memory's.... :)
