They were all taken on one night in February1988 when Rory played 4 nights in a row at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin.


This is the Rory picture with Ronnie Drew of the Dubliners. It was taken at the Hop Store in Guinness Brewery in Dublin around 1991. Rory was being honored by the City of Dublin and was presented with the Freedom of the City by the Lord Mayor. He was also honoured that night by Fender with a lifetime achievement award, a beautiful award, I believe James Burton (who backed Presley and Orbison among others) was a previous recipent. Rory played a few tunes in front of a small group of about 50 people.
