Ballyshannon already has a shrine and commemorative plaques will be running summer walking tours and there are plans to open a museum dedicated to this great man of Ulster.
Has slugger any Rory Gallagher fans ? Favourite tracks ?
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
