Schoolyard games

Primary school, Bulldogs charge! Yeah, so violent!!
"Red Rover, Red Rover, I call (insert name of someone you don't like) over".

The kid would try to run past a line of other kids to get to the other side of the yard. If he got caught, he got the thumps and then was on your side

Secondary school: Football with a tennis ball, 8.30 every morning and then at lunch-time.

Red Letter....'Red letter yellow letter I call the letter __' and everybody with that letter in their name moved forward..

And Mother May I..I can't remember what it entailed though.

Bulldog rocked! It got banned when we were in 4th class, because of the injuries..

Did anyone play a game called Ciggarettes On?
I played it when I was really young with all the kids on my road.
I know you said "Cigarettes on...x...." and then ran up and down.
Really REALLY dont know why!


Skipping was great. altho the songs we used to have to go with them were odd!
And such a job as i had to convince ppl that it was "vote vote vote for deValera" and not Fo fo Fo!

Soccer, Or Bulldogs. That game was brutal. You just picked someone smaller that you and made bits of them. until it was banned. Also we used to kick a ball against a wall (Squash i think) until my cousins head got caught between a football and a pebbledash wall.
Hide n' go seek was always an alternitive aswell.

mostly soccer, we used to play the class from nextdoor a lot. we got beaten about 17-0 every time. i remember walking around the yard crying 'coz i scored an own goal to put the others about 24-0 up...

"kiss cuddle or torture", all the lads always picked torture, the innocence of it all...
