- Located on South Main Street in Cork, Sir Henry’s opened in October 1977 as a restaurant at the back of the Stardust complex on the Grand Parade. It even had a spell as a rock café selling burger-based meals in an obvious emulation of the Hard Rock Café chain. It gradually evolved as a bar, nightclub and venue for bands. The name was derived from Henry O’Shea, a baker and building owner in the South Main Street area. The venue closed in June 2003 and the building demolished soon after.
- Irish radio RTÉ 2fm recorded the (whole?) showcase and broadcast 1 song on “The Dave Fanning Show In Concert” (a special series of 4 episodes) broadcast on 3 September 1991. A second song (Dreams) surfaced for the 1st time in April 2017 during the “2fm Music Special” programme and a 3rd song (Put Me Down) was released for the first time in 2018 on the official “EEDI 25th Anniversary Edition” (which includes the other 2 songs as well).
