I was just wondering if anything had been written about the club.

I was just in there the once as it was about to close, I would have been a generation removed from the clubs heyday.

Well Pudgee that depends actually.

If it was a memory lane type almanac of events, sets etc - then yes.

As a central part of an Irving Welshesque tale of debauchery in a provencial town - bring it on.

As a coffee table book of anecdotes, pics of emonsters with 1990's haircuts and big eyes - NICE WAN!

The fact that Henrys was in a small provincial city is a part of what made it so outstanding. It was ahead of its time and a credit to the Cork music scene.

I remember reading an interview with Garnier (think it was Mixmag) back in the day and the 2 questions and answers stood out:

MM: Best night of 199*?
LG: Sir Henrys Cork.

MM: Why?
LG: Go there and see.


Had to be there to understand the athmosphere. Made me well proud.
How many times has that one quote been rolled out?

It was his favourite club in 1994; big deal his favourite club in 1996 was probably the Redbox, i don't see the significance?

All I see is pointless nostalgia.

Whoever made a connection between irvine welsh and trainspotting and a book based on henrys probably spent a bit too much time in henrys popping pills.

Its Irelands paradise garage in many ways. I was lucky enough to be brought there by 2 lads from togher because i happened to be working in trabolgan with them. I'll never forget the feeling i got when i first walked in there (and this is before i came up)I literally felt as if i had come home,found my thing, this is where it was at. I was 19...the atmosphere so electric,you were safe. All these people together. so happy. I hav'nt even come close since and i've been to a few clubs as im 34 now. It spawned a generation of house lovers/djs of which i am one. I made many more trips to henrys for weekenders with the limerick crew the last one in 2000 to see kerri chandler. I had no idea it would be my last time there. i've been thinkin for the past year that somebody should do a documentary about henrys so this is brilliant.
Respect of the highest order is due to anyone associated with henrys as there will probably never be another one.

I dunno. I'd always thought you could get a crap 'chemical generation' novel out of the late 90s Cork scene.

There is book in it alright but not necessarily a crap one. Conal Creedon might be able to do justice to something like that.
