    Molly Malone is a ballad about a young woman from Dublin who sold cockles and mussels from a wheelbarrow. (Not today or yesterday)

    Sweet Molly Malone - the song

    In Dublins fair city, where the girls are so pretty,
    I once met a girl called sweet Molly Malone,
    As she wheeled her wheelbarrow, through the streets broad and narrow,
    Cryng cockles and mussels` Alive alive o

    Chorus

    Alive alive oh,
    Alive alive oh
    Crying cockles and mussels,
    Alive alive oh.

    Verse 2

    She wheeled her wheelbarrow through the streets broad and narrow,
    Just like her mother and father before
    And they wheeled their wheel barrow,
    through the streets broad and narrow,
    crying cockles and mussels alive alive oh

    My love had a fever and no one could save her,
    And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone,
    But her ghost wheels her barrow
    through the streets broad and narrow
    crying cockles and mussels alive-alive oh.

      I passed that about 10 or 15 times in the last couple of days, who knows we may have passed each other. Familiarity breeds contempt they say, I have never taken a picture of that sculpture in all the times I pass, shame me. Good job.

      I love the story behind the statue, but what caught my attention are the scale of the bikes next to her. They look miniature to the composition. Nice .
