This is for the guest who has said that my chirldren who are out busking that it is child labour?

you also said that they look like they dont enjoy it = You cant keep smiling all of the time when you are trying to concentrate on the tunes you are playing especially when you are at a young age and in front of thousands of people aswell.

maybe you dint know this because you might not play an instrument.

And back to your child labour cliam = my chirldren are out trying to build up the confidence in performing for when they are older and if along the way they are lucky enough to make a bit of money this will go towards a full set of Uilleann pipes which from a reputle maker will cost in the regin of 7500 for each full set.

p.s why dont you check out the all ireland Fleadh there are hundreds of chirldren out busking in the streets so it is not unusual.
