Today I went for a stroll around Dublin and enjoyed some sunshine and lovely weather.

Molly Malone

Walking past the statue of Molly Malone made me think of my old school days when we used to sing about her.

Bank of Ireland

There was many people out and quite a few tourist that was probably there for the 1916 centennial.

GPO

Outside the General Post Office the queues was so long I decided not to bother with them.

The Temple Bar

I wandered around Temple Bar, but decided to enjoy my beer somewhere else.

    This made me smile. When my son was little we used to sing “Molly Malone” to him every night. Then one day he started crying and asked us not to sing about the dead lady because it scared him. After that we couldn’t sing it anymore. Now that he is older we can laugh about it but it used to terrify him.

  2. Looks like you had a lovely time. I don’t know the song Molly Malone but have heard of it.

  3. I am curious now about Molly Malone!

    Thanks for the photos! Lots to see in Dublin. We used to sing that song all the time. I didn’t really know who she was, but the song was fun to sing! ๐Ÿ™‚
