SIR HENRY OF YOKEALOT !
Great news for those of you that frequented that late Sir Henrys club in Cork.
“Henrys the Movie “is going to be screened for the first time as part of the film festival.
It’s going to be a double bill as a documentary on “The shed “ from turners cross will also be screened.
Henrys was a shed, effectively, bog roll was a luxury but it had an atmosphere and ( more members ofThe D.S. ) like no other club in Ireland.
The most famous photo from Henrys is that of Kurt Cobain unconscious on a bench in the club, the ground peppered with crushed dutch gold cans.
It was the countries first Nirvanna gig, one that everyone claimed to be at, when in reality 50 people turned up.It was just before"Nevermind" was released.
