Molly Malone


So here is something of interest for any chocolate lovers out there. I recently came across this life size sculpture created entirly from chocolate. Its an exact replica of the famous Molly Malone statue which can be found at the bottom of Grafton street in Dublin.

The scuplture was recently created in Dundrum shopping Centre by chocolate artist Prudence Staite, as part of an ad campaign for Cadbury. Some of her other creations include an edible and lifesize sculpture of Elton John and a cheese recreation of the Eiffel Tower. Although made from Dairy Milk Chocolate, some additional ingredients were added which means this Molly is NOT Edible. So as the famous song goes;

In Dublins fair city, where the girls are so pretty,
I once met a girl called sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow, through the streets broad and narrow,
Cryng cockles and mussels` Alive alive o


Alive alive oh,
Alive alive oh
Crying cockles and mussels,
Alive alive oh.

Verse 2

She wheeled her wheelbarrow through the streets broad and narrow,
Just like her mother and father before
And they wheeled their wheel barrow,
through the streets broad and narrow,
crying cockles and mussels alive alive oh

My love had a fever and no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone,
But her ghost wheels her barrow
through the streets broad and narrow
crying cockles and mussels alive-alive oh.
