RORY GALLAGHER'S GRAVE
Rory Gallagher is probably Cork’s best known figure internationally and the musician’s life is marked by quite a few memorials and plaques around the city. See previous post on his statue in Rory Gallagher Plaza in Paul Street.
Quite a few visitors come to check on the places associated with his life and many end up at St Oliver’s Graveyard in Carrigrohane, the place where he was buried. Called to St Oliver’s myself the other day and you can see my photo attached.
St Oliver’s is a very large graveyard, with a map on the way in. It is also a lawn graveyard, meaning it is very tidy and graves are easy to find.
