Molly on the Shore is a composition of Percy Aldridge Grainger (8 July 1882 – 20 February 1961).

 It is an arrangement of two contrasting Irish reels, “Temple Hill” and “Molly on the Shore” that present the melodies in a variety of textures and orchestrations, giving each section of the band long stretches of thematic and counter melodic material. “Molly on the Shore” was written in 1907 by Grainger as a birthday gift for his mother.

Originally composed for string quartet or string orchestra, this piece was arranged in 1920 for wind band by the composer, as well as for orchestra.
