Molly Malone

"In Dublin, near Trinity College you can see the famous statue of Molly Malone. She was a poor but beautiful girl, who sold cockles and mussels on the streets to make money. They say that she died when she was still young"

There is a very famous Irish traditional song about Molly.  Watch this video and listen to it:

If you didn´t like this song ... Try this version by the Irish band "Fiffin Market"... I'm sure that you'll love it.
