Molly Malone Painting

Molly Malone

This artwork is inspired by the infamous Molly Malone. Legendary tales describes Molly as a fishmonger who sold cockles and muscles on the street’s of Dublin.

The Molly Malone Statue in Dublin is a famous tourist attraction, it is located at Suffolk Street, in front of the Tourist Information Office. Molly Malone is also a renowned song and has become an unofficial anthem of Dublin city.

In Dublin’s fair city,
Where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel-barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and Muscles,  alive, alive, oh!”
“Alive, alive, oh,
Alive, alive, oh,”
Crying “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh”.
She was a fishmonger
But sure ’twas no wonder
For so were her father and mother before
And they each wheel’d their barrow
Through streets broad and narrow
Crying “Cockles and mussels alive, alive oh!”
(chorus)
She died of a fever,
And no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
But her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!”
