    A crucially important work, it marks changing times for the Irish Travelling community Irish travellers book, indeed Ireland as a whole. Some have settled down, but others still maintain the Travelling lifestyle, albeit in RVs rather than the more traditional covered wagons. As an Irish Traveller, I recognize the importance of discussing our culture, traditions, and way-of-life with others. There is no competition for marriage partners in the Irish Traveller community. While to look further back would perhaps link the emergence of Travellers with the Plantation of Ulster, when the native Irish displaced from their land could have, in turn, formed a nomadic population, the study does not attempt to link them with any one event in history.
