Molly Malone on the move

Dublin's famous statue of Molly Malone is being moved to a new home.

She has attracted thousands of tourists to the bottom of Grafton Street over the past 25 years, but Molly is being temporarily relocated to make way for Luas works.

The statue will be removed at midnight, and will be cleaned and given a makeover during the next couple of weeks before taking up a new spot on Andrew Street, just around the corner.

One of her neighbours at the bottom of Grafton Street, Caroline, is sad to see her go.

"She's very much part of the scene here, so we'll be sad to see her go," she said. "But she'll be back."
