Legendary statue rocks into Belfast

19 October, 2016 - by Carál Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has welcomed news that a statue of Irish rock legend Rory Gallagher has received planning permission.

Ms Ní Chuilín said:

“I welcome the fact that Belfast City Council's planning committee has approved the proposal.

“Like many I am a fan of Rory Gallagher, he is a legendary guitarist who continues to influence many in the music industry.

“I think it is fitting that a statue honouring Rory Gallagher be erected at Belfast's Ulster Hall given that he played there regularly throughout his career.”
