General Post Office

Own this business?

The General Post Office on Oliver Plunkett Street in Cork’s city centre was previously a venue where the flamboyant virtuoso violinist Paganinni ( the Hendrix/Gallagher of his day ) once played.  It is a “stone’s throw” from the Beehive or Hayloft Bar where Rory formed and named his power trio “Taste” with Norman Damery (drums) and Eric Kitteringham (bass).
