The emergence of House Music in Ireland... (

This is a short documentary about a place that holds a special place in my heart. I was a little too young to have experienced it fully in its hay day but I did get to experience it towards the end.

'Sir Henry's', Cork, Ireland. The home of Greg & Shane (Fish Go Deep) and visited frequently by Kerri Chandler, Mike Pickering to name a few. The place also played host to Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier and many other House Music Legends back in the day.

From the late 80's to the late 90's this place was known as the Mecca of House Music in Ireland and known as the Hacienda of Ireland referring to the famous UK Club.

The place, the DJ's and the Music inspired a generation of new House music lovers, DJ's and Producers of which I am one of them.

For such a small city in such a small country this place has had a cultural impact on a global scale.
