Mary Flaherty is a fictional character from the BBC soap opera EastEnders, played by Melanie Clark Pullen.

Mary is the granddaughter of Maggie Flaherty, Pauline Fowler's long-lost sister. Her parents are Conor and Geraldine Flaherty. She first appeared in a special week of episodes set in Ireland.

When the Fowlers went to Ireland to meet their relatives, Mary was a teenager in trouble. Although she had a level head on her shoulders, she was having an affair with an older married man, Gerry McCrae.

Mary found a good friend in her cousin Mark, and decided to return to Walford with the Fowlers to escape her alcoholic, violent grandfather Sean.

Pauline initially liked Mary, often remarking that she was like a young Lou Beale, but they couldn't live in the same house and Mary often had to find new accommodation.

Mary also came between Joe Wicks and Sarah Hills, but Joe slept with Mary and left her, breaking her heart.

Mary broke her pelvis while on holiday in Norfolk and then got involved with Matthew Rose and Robbie Jackson, before leaving Walford with her father Conor and his pregnant lover, Mark's wife Ruth Fowler. They now live in Scotland.
