Mick Woods Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town? (192* d) RE: Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town? 20 Jan 11


Most of the people that "assume" it refers to an Irish town heard it first sung by the Dubliners or The Pogues. As the song doesn't name the town, that's a reasonable mistake to make! Mind you if those two acts hadn't covered it, then it would probably have remained unknown outside of the small folk community in england.
