When I heard for the first time the song " Molly Malone ," I told my wife : It could be the same Irish anthem! Only later did I learn that this song is unofiziele anthem Dublin.
It's a Beautiful statue.
Thank you for posting I have always loved the song and now I have a face to go with it.

Wout thank you for posting the Molly Malone tabs! Also, thank you Wayne for providing the link for Joe Collins website, I really like his tab books, they are easy to read and follow (especially for "mature" eyes!)
I opened a thread in the Old Style Noter&Drone Forum with the file attached. I made it 3/4 instead of the 6/8, so any comments welcome!
@ John, Dublin is a harbour city, isn't it?
Well, however historically accurate or immodest her attire is, I think Wout's original point is dead on. Given that outfit in the rainy streets of Dublin, no wonder she "died of a fever."
But that outfit would certainly draw attention, and she was selling something, whether herself or those "cockles and mussels." No different than the St. Pauli Girl or those buxom ladies on fruit and vegetable crates. Sex sells.
Hi Wout,what a kind offer, I would love to receive a PDF of this tune if it is not too much trouble.Not sure how to give you my email without posting it publically. Can the PDF be posted somewhere else on this website or on my page? (maybe others would enjoy it as well?) Not too good with this technical stuff.
Hi Wayne, I know, I was referring to one of the descriptions in the articleon Molly Malone, it described how she dressed in the evening and mentioned stilletos and fish nets.The statue actually has her dressed very typical for a middling class working woman of the 1600's-early 1700's, either a peddlar or a woman working in the fields. The clothing doesn't look tattered and there are bows on the sleeves and ruffles on her chemise, so she was not wealthy but also not too bad off whatever her profession. I am an 18th century interpreter (as a hobby) so I am facinated with women's clothing from back then.
I'm sure she's no better than she ought to be.
No idea where the idea that she may have had an 'evening job' came from, maybe the Dublin habit of finding alternative titles for their statues. She's known as 'The Tart with the Cart' by the locals (amongst less kinder nicknames).
Dublin's latest statue is known as the 'Stiletto in the Ghetto' (again, amongst less kinder nicknames), close on 400ft and the tallest in the world apparently

I have a pdf for noter&drone in DAA, but the Comments don't allow attachments. Where, if needed, can I send it to?
Fish nets and stilletos in the 17 hundreds? That is surely someone's fantasy! Whatever the story, it is a hauntingly beautiful song, can anyone play it on a dulcimer?
Just for the record, the Hans Brinkers Saga (as it is called) is written by an American author named Mary Mapes Dodge, in which story the boy isn't Hans Brinkers at all. Hans is one of the children who reads the story about the boy putting his finger in the dike all night long. Anyway, dikes are not distroyed by water comming through its body, but going underneath by the pressure and make the dike collapse...
Thanks @ Wayne! Nicde article. And here is the Dutch Molly Malone, called Hans Brinkers...
To be sure Wayne, ain't it the truth that its not the actual facts of a story that count, but more the telling of it that's important ? God bless all here !
If the statue is depicting a woman from the 18th century, an exposed bosom was not considered immodest or immoralhowever not having a head covering would have raised a few eyebrows.So wouldexposing ones elbows or calves. That being said I think the artist's interpretation may have gone just a bit too far.The fact that she has exposed stays indicates she is a lower class working woman.Higher class women would alwayswear a gown or jacketin public.This is a beatiful statue.
Anyway, some research on the net has taught me Miss Malone is not a historic person, but more the theme of a song for entertainment, more cabarettesque. Just a 'naughty' drinking song. The sculpturist is a woman, b.t.w., and there is an indication women of Dublin in that time (around 1700)were used nursing their children in public, which should explain the more open dress. I think that idea is a make-up, because who would believe that 10 years ago, when the statue was raised, the public knew that information? "Ah, she is a young mother!"
