Description:
We are indebted to many people for the production of this report. The scientific and advisory committees made many useful suggestions in the planning stages of the Census, and also latterly in the drafting of the final report. The Departments of Health and the Environment facilitated the Census at each stage. The major contribution to the Census was made by local authority staff, principally social workers who work with travellers, but also housing and other staff, and to all these enumerators our gratitude is due. Our thanks are specifically due to Wendy Ryan, formerly of Limerick County Council, who co-ordinated the local authority input into this Census. We also wish to acknowledge the support of local authority management. The ESRI made data from the 1981 Census of Travellers available. Computer analysis was carried out through the University College, Dublin computer centre. Data checking and preparation was carried out by Helen Holden, as was the typing of each draft of the report. Dr. Barry would also like to thank his employers, the Eastern Health Board and Dr. Patrick Quinn in particular, for supporting this work.
