Punch vs Judy
"Punch and Judy is a traditional, popular, and usually violent puppet show featuring Pulcinella (Mr. Punch) and his wife Judy. The performance consists of a sequence of short scenes, each depicting an interaction between two characters, most typically Mr. Punch and one other character who usually falls victim to Mr. Punch's club. It is often associated with traditional British seaside culture. The various episodes of Punch and Judy are performed in the spirit of outrageous comedy—often provoking shocked laughter—and are dominated by the clowning of Mr. Punch.
The show is performed by a single puppeteer inside the booth, known since Victorian times as a "professor" or "punchman", and assisted sometimes by a "bottler" who corrals the audience outside the booth, introduces the performance, and collects the money ("the bottle"). The bottler might also play accompanying music or sound effects on a drum or guitar, and engage in back chat with the puppets, sometimes repeating lines that may have been difficult for the audience to understand. In Victorian times, the drum and pan pipes were the instruments of choice. Today, the audience is also encouraged to participate, calling out to the characters on the stage to warn them of danger or clue them in to what is going on behind their backs. Also nowadays, most professors work solo, since the need for a bottler became less important when busking with the show gave way to paid engagements at private parties or public events."

"In Irish Folklore there are many references to the sea."
"A bardic account of the two battles of Moytura, the sacred megalithic complex in Sligo. From the magical lore of ancient Ireland, this tale recounts conflicts of the ancestors at the dawn of the world. Stark, strange, beautiful, violent and hinting always at hidden truths, this of all ancient Celtic stories presents an insight into Druidic allegorical teachings. * In Irish Folklore there are many references to the sea. In fact one of the earliest races are called the Fomorians. This may derive from 'fo-mhuir' meaning 'under sea' in Irish, perhaps a reference to the origins of these people as being from a land long since inundated, or aspects 'under' ones subconscious. The early history of Ireland as told in song and story and recorded in early manuscripts refers to several colonizations of Ireland. The following interesting poem of unknown authorship describes the various conquests of Ireland. The topics mentioned in the poem are first recorded in an 11th century manuscript called Leabhar Gabhála na hÉireann - The Conquests of Ireland. In the context of this discussion it is interesting to note the reference to flooding in verses three and four. In particular where the poet says that he slept for a year at 'Tul-Tunna of strength' while the earth was flooded."
