Kathleen Doll & Book

When 12-year-old Kathleen Murphy discovers Irish dancing, she feels more like a Celtic princess than a poor girl from the Dublin tenements.

She doesn’t mind practicing hard for the big dance competition. But then she learns that to compete she’ll need an expensive dance costume—which her family cannot afford. Luckily, Kathleen’s Aunt Polly comes up with a surprising solution!

Kathleen’s pleated Irish dance dress is made of soft green wool and trimmed with satin piping. Celtic knots are embroidered on the bodice and at the bottom of her brat, or cape, which is lined with yellow silk. Gold pins symbolizing Old Ireland secure her brat and the jaunty feather in her beret, and three dance competition medals jingle at her waist.

Your 9-inch Kathleen™ doll includes a stand and Kathleen: The Celtic Knot paperback book by Siobhán Parkinson.
