Molly Malone is the unofficial anthem of Dublin city.
Molly's statue stands near St Andrews Church at the junction of Grafton Street and Suffolk Street.

The song is also known as Cockles And Mussels.

Molly Malone
(Cockles And Mussels)

In Dublin fair city
Where the girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
As she wheels her wheel barrow
Through the streets broad and narrow
Crying Cockles and Mussels a-live a-live O!
A-live a-live O!
A-live a-live O!
Crying Cockles and Mussels a-live a-live O!


She was a fishmonger
And sure ’twas no wonder
For so were her father and mother before
And they both wheeled their barrow
Through the streets broad and narrow
Crying Cockles and Mussels a-live a-live O!
(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 the streets broad and narrow
Crying Cockles and Mussels a-live a-live O!…
