Traveller History

Travellers are a distinct ethnic group within Irish society (recognized through Northern Ireland Equality Act Section 75). Their lifestyle and culture, based on a nomadic tradition, sets them apart from the settled community. They are widely acknowledged as one of the most marginalized and disadvantaged groups in Irish society, facing social exclusion, widespread disadvantage and discrimination.
