A Travelling girl's story



The story is told through the eyes of young Traveller girls who are struggling to get an education. These girls face discrimination on an everyday basis but are feisty, funny and full of life. The O'Briens, the Slatterys and the Hegartys have been fighting for a secure place for their families for over 10 years. Yet a combination of conflict with the settled community, which no longer relies on their labour, and a pervasive discrimination "“ from the Council to local shopkeepers "“ has left the community devastated. John O'Brien will soon be expected to provide for his own family. In the film you will see him at Appleby Horse Fair. The struggle of these three families typifies the situation that Irish Travellers and Roma face up and down the country. They ask you to support this project with a donation that will fund the film. The film is intended to help all those who are fighting for a place to call home and will be used as an educational tool.
