Molly Malone is a fictional character popularized in an 18th century Irish folksong. It tells the story of a fair young fishmonger selling mussels and cockles through the streets of Dublin. In the final verse, the young Molly tragically passes far too young of a fever. If you ever visit Dublin, Ireland don’t miss the opportunity to see the statue dedicated to Molly Malone on Suffolk Street. Original FolkSong 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 mussels, alive, alive-O! Alive, alive-O! alive, alive-O! Crying cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O! She was a fish-monger, but sure 'twas no wonder For so were her father and mother before And they each wheeled their barrow Through streets broad and narrow Crying cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O! Alive, alive-O! alive, alive-O! Crying cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O! 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-O! Alive, alive-O! alive, alive-O! Crying cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O!
