We all know the game ‘Tug of War’ but in 1916, Irish children were very creative and had pre selection games to see which children would be on each team for the end game of ‘Tug of War’.
A selection of these games from Dublin, Tipperary, Donegal, Kildare, Galway and Mayo were taken from the Schools Manuscript Collection. These games may be useful for you to teach to children on Play day and or Recreation week in Tug of War competitions.
