re: Molly Malone

If you had read the original thread more thoroughly (as you admitted in it that you didn't), you would have found out that there is very little "most probably" about it. Here's my reference from the British Library.

"Cockles and Mussels" Comic Song. (Written and composed by J. Yorkston, arranged by E. Forman.) Yorkston. James 1884."

The original article's here>/a>, and very well researched.
