"My Happiness", Elvis Presley, 1953.

Waterside House hotel Donabate north county Dublin Ireland.  A new resource.

Priscilla Presley is in Manchester U.K. 24th November 2014.  Graceland Exhibition in London.

The "My Happiness" story presently circulating  in the international media has an Irish link. Yours truly!
Anthony and Dennis Duggan friends of Ed leek contacted me back in 2008, because Ed was attempting to find a buyer for Elvis's first disc. I was chosen to help publicise Ed's effoerts. We became good friends, exchanging letters, email and dozens of telephone calls.
Sadly Ed Leek died a few years ago and the disc became the property of his widow, Susan Leek. We spoke and she sent me notes, concerning the disc. Unfortunately Susan died last June. We had hoped to meet her in Florida when we were there. A mutual friend informed us of her passing.

Now Graceland is to auction the famous recording on what would have been Elvis's birthday, the 8th January 2015. 
Do I have a story to share?
