The late guitarist Rory Gallagher is to be honoured with a new statue outside the Ulster Hall in Belfast, where he performed many times over the years and where there’s already a plaque in his honour.

Gallagher’s birthplace  of Ballyshannon in Donegal has a life-sized bronze statue, while Cork where he was raised, named Rory Gallagher Place after him in 1997. There have also been several commissioned street-art tributes, plaques and a bid by citizens to rename the airport after him.

I know you don’t normally do this but my guitar (above) was stolen from the boot of my car about two weeks ago. My car was parked on Jervis Street, Dublin 1. It’s not very expensive but has sentimental value.

I was learning to play and it was given to me by a friend. It’s hard to find an exact replacement online. I’m not holding out much hope but would appreciate any help! Many thanks…

Last year, she gave an even more impressive rendition of the solo from Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb.

The guitar is a custom Vigier Excalibur. But you knew that.
