Thread Name: Who Wrote Molly Malone?
Subject: RE: Help: Who wrote Molly Malone?
I guess to round off this thread there seems to be ample evidence that this song was weitten by James Yorkston, a Scot. He may never have visited Dublin and indeed Molly Malone may have been a convenient Irish name to place in what was essentially a pop tune of the time. Regards, John
