Irish Travellers: Parallel History?

Venue: Eirgrid Stage

One out of every 150 Irish people is a Traveller. The history of this ethnic minority is very different to that of the ‘Country’ (settled) community. Meath-based historian Liam McNiffe attempts to dispel some of the myths, while elaborating on the changing relationship between Travellers and the ‘Country’ people since the Famine.
