Children s traditional street-games play an important part in the folklife of a country.

This reprint will help parents and educators realize how happy children are, when given an opportunity to use their imagination and to create their own amusements, even in a restricted locale. It shows how, in Dublin, Ireland, traditional street-games and rhymes still flourish, and how children adapt traditions to a modern environment.

This book - from the Folklore of Ireland Council - is distributed by Four Courts Press. One of the book s strengths is its openness to the many forms that childlore takes.Her (Brady s) descriptions of children s play are both highly specific and pleasantly readable.We are fortunate to have such a well-organized, detailed, and delightful study of twentieth-century Dublin childlore.
