“Molly Malone” (also known as “Cockles and Mussels” or “In Dublin’s Fair City”) is a popular song, set in Dublin, Ireland, which has become the unofficial anthem of Dublin.

The Molly Malone statue in Grafton Street was unveiled by then – Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alderman Ben Briscoe during the 1988 Dublin Millennium celebrations. Declaring the 13th ofJune as Molly Malone Day. The statue was presented to the city by Jury’s Hotel Group to mark the Millennium.

Since 18 July 2014, it has been relocated to Suffolk Street, in front of the Tourist Information Office, in order to make way for Luas track – laying work to be completed at the old location. It is a statue every tourist to Dublin needs a picture with! 🙂
