Thread Name: Dominic Behan again.
Subject: RE: Dominic Behan again.
I was a friend and co-writer with Dominic and he certainly did not write The Old Triangle. The sleeve notes to his Topic EP (TOP 85)were written by Enoch Kent in conjunction with Dominic and says " ....The song originated in Mountjoy Prison ...". I know Dominic wrote verses and amended many traditional songs but the credit for the Old Triangle goes to an inmate of Mountjoy Prison which never afforded accomodation for Dominic although Brendan did a spell there.
