Glen Hansard & Damien Dempsey are set to release ‘The Auld Triangle’ this Friday, 3rd December, to raise awareness and much needed funds for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, (SVP).
“We recorded this song to highlight and raise funds for the work of Society of St. Vincent de Paul which includes offering help to the many households each day in Ireland who are having difficulty keeping the lights on. You can help…” Damien Dempsey & Glen Hansard (Nov 2010)
The single will be available to buy in stores and to download from iTunes. The single features three tracks:
1. The Auld Triangle

‘The Auld Triangle’ and ‘Raglan Road’ were recorded by Karl Odlum and mixed by John Reynolds in November 2010. ‘Not On Your Own Tonight’ is taken from Dempsey’s album ‘To Hell Or Barbados’, (Expanded Edition). The single features a brilliant illustration by Eyebrowy. Everyone involved in the production of this single has donated their time and services.
