Travellers as they are called today or tinkers as they originally were known as owe their existence to the Cromwellian policy of to hell or to Connacht. Displaced people in those times travelled the country doing odds jobs like mending pots and pans etc to earn a living. Todays travellers have long forsaken their ancestors trades so calling them an ethnic group is a joke as the origins of their initial existence ie working as tin smiths have long been consigned to history.
