Laois Traveller Action Group celebrated ‘Traveller Pride Week’ which is on in Ireland from 18th-25th July. LTAG’s Traveller Pride event was held at Bloom HQ, Mountrath, Co. Laois on Wednesday 20th July 2022.
Members of the Laois Travelling community came together to celebrate their heritage, culture, and music tradition.
Traditions in Traveller culture that were once widely practiced and experienced, are rare today. This year’s Traveller Pride Week is about coming together and acknowledging and embracing Traveller heritage with pride, exploring Traveller natural creativity to connect with one another, and sharing cultural experiences through the joy that creativity brings.
