Created by Jeanne Rynhart in tribute to the famous song of the fictional fishmonger, Molly Malone who plied her trade on the streets of Dublin, the Molly Malone statue was unveiled in Grafton Street during the Dublin Millennium celebrations by the 1988 Lord Mayor of Dublin, Ben Briscoe.
She now resides in Suffolk Street in front of the Tourist Information Office, although she is expected to return to her original location by 2017.
