Molly Malone - “Striving Against Adversity”
Molly Malone wheeled her wheelbarrow through the streets of Dublin City in the 17th century. Molly has since been immortalised in song, and in 1988 Jeanne Rynhart was commissioned to make a life sized sculpture of her, which is situated on Grafton Street in Dublin City. Jeanne has sculpted this keep-sake in the likeness of her original statue.
