I'll take you at your word and accept that you have a lot of problems, I'm guessing, with anti-social behaviour from travellers. It's not hard to believe. I've said before here that a whole bunch of that community don't do themselves or their community any favours, and that's putting it mildly, but you just can't say out loud what those two guys did as public figures.
Whether by accident or design, what their public statements amounted to was incitement to hatred, and the outworkings of that probably was the arson attack.
No, I wouldn't like to suffer what you have, and again...I don't disbelieve you, but I've seen enough of the self same behaviour from "settled" people in my lifetime.
Do you think that's fair comment?
Your right on the settled people thing.But you have to take into account that there are only 40,000 tinkers in Ireland and they are forever in the news causing trouble.
I'd love to see crime statistics for tinkers in percentage terms.
They think they can do what they like so it's no surprise that people judge the book by it's cover.
