Classic Irish Telephone Box Lantern
The first Irish Telephone Box was installed on Dawson Street, Dublin in 1925. It helped create one of the first modern links to the outside world for the Irish.
For many years the Irish public relied upon the local telefón box as their only means of communication with the outside world.
These replicas are 25cm in height and make beautiful hurricane candle holders.
Genesis – Molly Malone
We couldn’t create this list without including the famous Molly Malone!
The Dublin folk song tells the fictional tale of a fishmonger who plied her trade on the streets of Dublin, but who died young, of a fever.
In the late 20th century, a legend grew up that there was a historical Molly, who lived in the 17th century. She is typically represented as a hawker by day and part-time prostitute by night. There is a statue erected at the bottom of Grafton Street based on the story, which Genesis’ bronze rendition is based on.
