about this item

For centuries, Cork's Shawlies survived by trading on public streets. Then, in 1926, the Irish Free State government introduced the Street Trading act, insisting it was fair legislation needed to regulate trading. In practice, it limited the rights of the Shawlies to earn, and facilitated their disappearance.
