This week is Traveller Pride week! The theme of this year’s pride week is: Recognising diversity and pride within the Traveller community #diversitywithin. Traveller Pride week is a time to celebrate and promote what the Travelling Community brings to Irish society.

We want to hear from young Travellers about your experience as a young traveller in Ireland. We believe that young people across Ireland can help support each other by sharing stories, lived experiences, advice and opinions. If you’re between 16 and 25 years old and living in Ireland, we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in sharing your story.
