|Seonaid||Origins: Molly Malone (86* d)||RE: Help: History for Molly Malone please||24 Dec 99|
This has been a great thread. I didn't realize Molly could be found in Gaelic -- great! Re Molly's moral reputation: There is a traditional association of fish and sex, based on olfactory considerations (if you don't understand, ask a sexually adventurous friend). Not much of a stretch to associate peddling a barrow full of actual marine creatures with the selling of something else entirely.
