GARY MOORE 1952-2011

Over the weekend, legendary Belfast born guitarist Gary Moore died in Spain.

Moore was commemorated in his home city a few years ago when a mural of him appeared in his native East Belfast.

It was outside The Oval, at the away terracing, alongside images of other East Belfast heroes such as Van Morrison and CS Lewis.

Sadly, new houses that were subsequently built mean that the mural, like it’s subject, is no more.

Phil Lynott, with whom he was long associated, is commemorated with a statue in his home city of Dublin.
