The children of Ballydowse & Carrickdowse engage in battles in which they cut off the buttons, shoe-laces, belts and braces of their captured opponents. This gets their opponents in trouble with parents. They go to battle in mass groups of dozens, wielding sticks & slingshots. It’s a battle of strategic skills for the opposing leaders, including one scene in which the principal gang uses an ancient war trick to overcome their opponents with successful and itchy results.
