Stone Roses Musician Mani pays a visit to his mother's hometown to celebrate Irish roots


Musician Stone Roses, Mani, visited his mother's Irish hometown in an attempt to rediscover his roots.

The bassist, who played with the band until their separation in 1996, unveiled a sign in his name during a long ceremony titled "Made in Athy."

And it happened after the legendary guitarist, Jannie Marr, also visited the small town to celebrate his legacy last Friday.

Manny, also known as Gary Monfield, was set up with local fans and even had time to get down into the local drinking for a liter of Guinness.

His mother came from the village of Nocro, Magne, which was only five doors from which Marr's mother grew up.

They were part of a long list of immigrants who went to England in the 1950s.

The project will run for six months and will include 23 panels, each of which commemorates his contribution to music rooted in the immigrant communities of Ireland.

The first board was unveiled by the grandson of Johnny Cash, Thomas Gabriel, to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the advent of his legendary grandfather in the Irish city.

On November 23, Panetti Bliss will unveil a poster for producer and broadcaster Bill Hughes, and on December 3, the Finnish ambassador will reveal one for the Finnish singer Erin Quivisto, who also has roots in the region.
