A social portrait of Travellers in Ireland

Dorothy Watson (), Oona Kenny, Frances McGinnity and Helen Russell ()

No RS56 in Research Series from Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI)

Abstract: A new report published by the ESRI finds that education is key to improving the employment and living circumstances of Travellers. The authors of A Social Portrait of Travellers in Ireland draw on the full 2011 Census of Population to explore whether certain groups of Travellers (in terms of gender, age and region) experience particularly high levels of disadvantage in four areas: education, employment, housing and health.
