Molly Malone and Wheelbarrow Monument, Dublin, Ireland

A statue in Dublin, Ireland, cast in bronze to celebrate the city's millennium in 1987 features Molly Malone, a beautiful fishmonger who plied her trade on the streets of Dublin, but who died young of a fever. This statue is known locally as "The Tart With The Cart", "The Dish With The Fish", "The Trollop With The Scallop(s)", "The Dolly With the Trolley", and "The Flirt in the Skirt".
