Finally got to this wonderful spot today with Papa Smurff! Delighted to find it so easily. It’s on RORY Gallagher Place not far off Paul’s Street!

Every student and their mother hang out here. A buzzing meeting point at Paul St Shopping Centre. Small cobblestoned square but so much to see/do here - food, shoes, books, cafe's, ---- and thats all outside the main Shopping centre.

Tribute statue to Rory Gallagher a wonderful guitarist brought up in Cork. As a big fan I had to visit this. Also plaque on wall Rory Gallagher Place. Would imagine the little square would be quite busy with people sitting out in summer time.

As a long time Rorry Gallagher fan touring Ireland for the first time, I had to find this monument in the heart of the city!! Very moving trip as I walked in his footsteps and later found his gravesite!
