GUEST,Mikey Joe Help: Who wrote Salonika????? (7) Who wrote Salonika????? 23 Nov 00

Hi folks

does anyone know who wrote the song Salonika? As in

"My husbands in salonika I wonder if he's dead? I wonder if he knows he has a kid with a foxy head? S'write away..........."

I've heard Hamish Imlach & Jimmy Crowley sing it.

I always thought it was a Cork song due to the many local references (Coliseum, St. Mary's Hall, Blarney etc etc)

Anyone any idea
