Plugd closes

Thursday, 15th June, 2017 9:38am

After the demise of the Camden Palace Hotel, Cork Community Print Shop and The Kino, the much-lovedPlugd Records and Gulpd Café can now be added to the list.

One of Cork's flagships for independent records and music, Plugd was run by Jimmy Horgan and Albert Twomey since 2002.

Originally operating out of Washington Street, the premises closed in 2009 and briefly took shelter in the ESB Substation on Caroline Street in 2010 before traversing to the Triskel Arts Centre in 2011.

Jimmy wrote on his Facebook page on Monday night, “We are closing the doors on our Tobin Street adventure at the end of the month. After six years here, it has been a difficult decision to make but we feel it is the right one at this time.”

The store is planning to make a return in some way, shape or form in the future after its closure at the end of this month.

“This isn’t goodbye. We will be back in some form or another in the future. But for now we are taking some time off to regroup and come back better,” the social media post said.

For the rest of June, there are plenty of live acts and events taking place at Gulpd to see the guys off.
