Molly Malone and Siobhan Ó Donndubháin shared the same house in downtown Dublin. They were students. Molly was studying marine biology, and Siobhan was writing a thesis on why the f**k Irish names were never spelt the way they were pronounced.

It was the feast of St Patrick, and a public holiday. In downtown Dublin, Molly and Siobhan had the day off from lectures and tutorials. They slept in, then got up and had a nice cup of tea.
