Rory Gallagher Corner, Dublin 2
Rory Gallagher born William Rory Gallagher (2 March 1948 - 14 June 1995) was an Irish blues-rock multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and bandleader. Born in Ballyshannon, County Donegal, Ireland, and raised in Cork, Gallagher recorded solo albums throughout the 1970s and 1980s, after forming the band Taste during the late 1960s.
A talented guitarist known for his charismatic performances and dedication to his craft, Gallagher's albums have sold in excess of 30 million copies worldwide. Gallagher received a liver transplant in 1995, but died of complications later that year in London, England aged 47.
Gallagher was always associated with his well-worn sunburst 1961
Stratocaster (Serial Number 64351), which his brother Donal has
officially retired. It was reputedly the first in Ireland, and was
ordered from Fender by Jim Connolly, a showband member performing with
The Irish Showband.
Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
