Fascinating memorabilia to celebrate Cork's legendary venue Sir Henrys

An exhibition is underway at UCC.

AN EXHIBITION INSPIRED by Sir Henrys, the club and music venue which operated in Cork from 1978 to 2003 has opened at UCC.

Curating images and memorabilia from former customers, bands, the Lucey family (venue owners), journalists and many other sources, the exhibition is aimed to work towards creating a permanent music archive.

UCC has shared some of the exhibits with DailyEdge.ie, including memories of Nirvana and Sonic Youth’s legendary gigs, as well as local favourites.
