Subject: RE: Obit: Shane MacGowan (1957-2023) of the Pogues
Just to point out, from your second link, that Dirty Old Town is not an old Irish song. It is a 20th century song written by Ewan MacColl (an Englishman with Scottish parents) about Salford, the town where my mum was born, and which I performed with a friend at my mum's funeral.
