All the other big names were there to be fair, Justin Pipe won it, beat James Wade in the final.

Highlight of the day was getting a photo with Terry Jenkins and the Pieman in the bar of the hotel. I also met Brendan "9 Dart" Dolan in the queue for McDonalds, no joke
While they were playing the local lads it was a bit of craic , tbf, very enjoyable. Then they played each other and we were all told to be quiet, at an exhibition ffs.

I fucked off before it was over tbh.

The Blarney Stone.

Winston Churchill, one of this century’s great orators, kissed the stone. Comedian Stan Laurel kissed it, but his bulky partner Oliver Hardy declined.

Television actor Larry Hagman, never at a loss for words as the villainous J. R. Ewing in “Dallas,” had to take off his Stetson to pay lip-service to the stone.

As First Sea Lord of the Empire at the height of its power - Winston Churchill was one of the most powerful men in the world when he visited Cork in the summer of 1912.

The man who would go on to lead Britain against Hitler was especially interested in the town that was then known as Queenstown - and the vitally important naval base at Haulbowline.

Churchill considered Cork, with its vast natural harbour, fearsome defences and deep-water berths as "the sentinel on the Western Approaches" - the key to guarding the sea lanes across the north Atlantic.

If you go to the imperial hotel, they list some of the famous guests on the wall.

Edit.
Pulled this off their website.

“The Imperial Hotel has welcomed many other notable guests coming by coach or by car, the great Irish painter, Daniel Maclise stayed here, the novelist William Makepeace, Thackeray took tea in the lounge with Father Theobald Mathew, the Apostle of Temperance, Charles Dickens gave a reading in the Clarence Room, Daniel O’Connell addressed a glittering assemblage there and Liszt gave a Piano recital.

In more recent years, George Best came to stay, got into a fight and left! The late Maureen O’Hara frequently dined here, actor Brian Dennehy and star of TV sitcom Murder She Wrote, Angela Lansbury, are both regulars.”

Chester Bennington would have spent a lot of time in East Cork. He was very friendly with the lads from Cyclefly and would often be spotted in rural pubs around East Cork.

On the will ferrel and midleton reference from the previous page. Will Ferrel and John C Reilly were on the tear in Midleton one day a few years ago. They spent the day drinking with the locals in cantys and Niall Macs bars.

Sure George Best played for Cork Celtic, briefly.

A few huge names played for Cork teams actually. Geoff Hurst, Gordon Banks, Uwe Rosler.
