In March of this year.
Travellers were officially recognised as a minority ethnic group in Ireland.
Artist Paul D’Arcy has designed a Traveller ethnicity pin featuring a wagon wheel and the harp.
Pavee Point writes:
“This week-end we celebrate the first International Human Rights Day with Irish Travellers officially recognised as a minority ethnic group by the Irish State. We will be posting photos and messages on Facebook and Twitter of people wearing the Traveller ethnicity pin.”
