Traveller Pride Family Day 2023
There was a great turn out at the Traveller Pride Family Day on the 8th July in the Army Barracks, Longford.
The Travellers spoke of how life was for them growing up along the roads, sleeping in the camp as shown.
The barrel-topped caravan was traditionally red, green, and yellow. Red symbolised the heart and the family, the green represented nature and the yellow signified the sun and God.
