The Shame of Ireland

"What it like growing up", said 1 of 2 teenagers in the project. "In 1950s I sold newspapers after school to help at home. I had to look out for the undercover policeman, known as," The Badge Man" if you didn't have a licence you could get upto 7 years in an industrial school".
