Part two of walking around Dublin. We just continue with the statute of the lovely Molly Malone – who was brought to life by The Dubliners.
In Dublin’s fair city
Where the girls are so pretty
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow
Through the streets broad and narrow
Crying “cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh (The Dubliners)
Walking from Grafton Street to Dublin Castle..
The Castle used to be the home of the English government until the signing of the Anglo-Irish treaty in 1921, today it is used by the Irish government.
Right around the corner the house of the “Sick & Indicent Roomkeepers Society”!
Walking through Dublin of the Vikings who let quite a lot of history behind having started to settle in Ireland in 795. And staid until the Norman invasions in the 12th century.
