I recognize Rory, but that strat isn't his old faithful one :shock: :o :shock: or, at least it looks like it's been refinished- :mrgreen:

I never did this before..
Probably as most Rory fans thought / assumed that Rory Gallagher was one of it's most famous sons..
Well I googled " Cork's most famous people " Two websites had a list. Rory Gallagher was not even on them :(

This is the Cork City Council website http://www.cork.ie/explore/history/famouscorkpeople/

So what chance has the airport got of being named after him with these showings :(

Well, I don't know if I'd blame the whole town for what the city council promotes. It's a shame that there is a segment in Cork that can call the shots like that and is so short-sighted that they can't see what is right in front of them.

Hopefully that attitude will change. And there does seem to be an odd sort of backlash toward Rory which I can't understand at all. I suspect it has more to do with conservative, narrow-minded stiff types who see Rory as a garden-variety ego-centric over-indulgent rock star and never looked any further or questioned their assumptions to see who he really was.

:lol: :lol: and the sentence at the end of their rather sad little list: "If we have missed out on anybody that you believe should be on this then please let us know"

Talk about not seeing the elephant in the room. Someone ought to forward the names of all the people on the petition to get the airport renamed, and point out that all these people might well suggest they pull their heads out from where they are at the moment and take a look.

I did e-mail Cork Council and they never replied. Maybe fans could e-mail them and get Rory mentioned and help promote Cork Rocks For Rory Festival, get Cork Airport renamed and reopen Crowleys Music Store. Subrata. x
