Day 131 Arty G McGonigle (Photo A Day 2012)

I was in Omagh today and passed by this plaque on the wall outside Supervalu on Market Street. It’s to the memory Arthur McGonigle or “Arty G”  who was one of the most familiar faces in Omagh Town centre for the past number of decades, playing his unique blend of music from his daily position near the Northern bank in Market Street accompanied by his trusty canine companion ‘Gizmo’. Arty died in 2007 and I was in Omagh the day they unveiled this plaque back in 2008. I can’t believe that is three and a half years ago.
