Molly Malone

Molly Malone is a song I've always loved, since the very first time I heard it without undesrtanding a word. It makes you think of longing and people and things you have lost.
This popular song tells the story of a pretty fishmonger who tried to make her living in the streets of Dublin. There is no evidence the real Molly ever existed but the legend says she lived in the 17th century.
Anyway, this song has become the unoficial anthem of Dublin City and it is simply beautiful.
