Description:
This study is a cause of both disquiet and hope. The disquiet comes from the failure to respond adequately to the inhuman living conditions of Travelling people which this report documents so clearly. It is a disquiet which should be felt by every section of the settled community - Central Government, Local Authorities, Religious Bodies and ordinary people. However this study also engenders a sense of hope which is equally strong. It shows that the problems which have obstructed the accommodation of Travelling people can be overcome and indeed in certain important instances in the Dublin area have been overcome. Although many of the initiatives which have been taken to improve Travelling peoples accommodation over recent years have largely failed, there have been some important exceptions where encouraging successes have been achieved. This study does much to teach us why the failures have occurred, but it also gives great encouragement by spelling out what brought the successes about. The study also suggests that behind the fear and prejudice which settled people display towards Travelling people there is some vein of positive feeling.
