I have some photos of the great Irish folk group De Dannan taken at the 1985 Trowbridge festival that I want to upload to Wikimedia commons, and want to get the correct name for the accordion player in this photo with Frankie Gavin. I think it is probably Jackie Daly but am not sure... any assistance appreciated! Cheers - Tony

Frankie Gavin plus ??, on stage with De Danann, Trowbridge Festival 1985

Martin O'Connor is the/ an other candidate... a friend on Facebook thinks it is him.

By the way the full band photo of which this is a portion is here:

It was a great line-up, with both Mary Black and Dolores Keane alternating on vocals...
