    This statue at the end of Grafton Street is of Molly Malone, who featured in a famous Irish song. In keeping with the Dubliners seeming obsession for giving their statues "alternative" names, this one is known locally as the "tart with the cart"..

    The tart with the Cart

    In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my sights on sweet Molly Malone....

    Dublin has many statues, some have been given nicknames by the locals....this one is The tart with the cart.

    Not sure what prompted my friends to jump up and accost this poor market girl but I can assure you, not a drink had passed their lips by this point!

    Cockles & Mussels

    In Dublin's fair City
    where wthe girls are so pretty
    I first set my eyes
    on sweet Molly Mallone,
    as she wheels her wheel barrow
    tro' the streets broad and narrow
    crying cockles and mussels
    a live a live O !!!!

    She was a fishmonger
    but sure it was no vonder
    for so where hwe father and mother before
    and they both wheeled their barrow
    crying cockles and mussels
    a live a live O !!!!

    She died of a fever
    and no one could save her
    and that was the end of sweet Molly Mallone
    but her ghost wheels her barrow
    through streets broad and narrow
    crying cockles and mussels
    a live alive O !!!!

    Molly Malone is another quintessential part of Dublin. It's no more than just a statue of a lady selling mussels and she features in an Irish song known in most of the world.

    But let me tell you the full story. Molly Malone did indeed sell cockles and mussels on the streets of Dublin but the song never tells you that by night she sold something else on the streets of Dublin. I'll blush if I'm going to be too specific but suffice it to say that it was only men who bought it from her and they wouldn't be too keen to tell their wives of such purchases...

    The statue of Molly Malone seems to be the most photographed place in Dublin.
    Molly Malone was a fishseller by day, but by night she offered another thing to her male clients.

    This is the famous Molly Malone statue.i do not know much about this famous lady, but I learn every new city I go to.

    She was a fishmonger by day and had another job at night. ;o)
