Dublin Corporation announces the first winner of a competition for street traders.
Street trading has been part of Dublin's Moore Street for as long as anyone can remember.
Maura Kelly had been selling fruit and vegetables on Moore Street in Dublin for 35 years. Dublin Corporation had launched the Molly Malone competition earlier that summer to encourage licensed street traders to improve the appearance of their stalls and involve them in a campaign to prevent litter. There were prizes of £100, £50 and £30 for the top three stalls.
Maura Kelly is delighted to come first. She won with her original stall, newly painted with a fresh cover. However, for Maura, business is nothing like it used to be.
