Subject: RE: Origin: The Old Triangle
My uncle Dickey Shannon has been named as the author of this song and I have being trying to contact Tom Neary about this matter. My father Thomas Shannon told me as far back as the 1950s that Dickey had written it. Dickey is buried in Manchester. It would be nice to see a plaque erected indicating him as the author. It would do something for the family that has suffered so much from capitalism, war, state oppression and emigration.
