O’Connell Street, Dublin is a quieter, less sanctimonious colourful place today.

Mary Magaret Dunne, the stylish, fun-loving, unremittingly pious, street performer has gone to her reward.

Many say you couldn’t properly call yourself a Dubliner until Mary had singled you out for a spot of the one-one-one scripture-based ‘verbals’

Dave Kelly writes:

“Not many people know this but the Spire was actually erected in tribute to Mary’s shamanic dancing on her traditional spot on O’Connell St. We will not see here likes again, she brought a smile to the city of Dublin for many years. A bemused smile maybe, but a smile none the less.”
