"Páistí ag imert le roth", yep, sounds about right, we're all poor as dirt here in Ireland! My mother could never afford 'toys' when we were kids. Those were only for posh children!

I know. I was trying to carry your example one step further by pretending I didn't even know what a ball was. Seemed funny at the time. :-)
