“The Tart with the Cart” is one of the many names for the Molly Malone statue found at the bottom of Grafton Street .
Many Americans and other foreigners are so familiar with the song (for whatever reason) that it seemed almost obligatory for a statue to be made.
The statue did not go over well with Dubliners as the lore is that Molly sold a lot more than what was in her cart. She is also simply spilling out of the top of her dress so there is a lack of appreciation as to why anyone would be behind such a trampy statue. As such, she has many unflattering nicknames.
