RORY PLAQUE @ ULSTER HALL ?

Postby Jay Jay » 23 Jul 2011, 11:10

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

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.... :)
