Description

A new book by Traveller children from Dungarvan, County Waterford, providing a snapshot of their lives and traditions. The book took shape through a series of creative workshops with Traveller children and their parents. The children worked with Kids’ Own artist Orla Kenny and writer Mary Branley to share their experiences, stories and hopes for the future.

‘Boxing is great. I’m training hard to get into the tournaments next year. I like all the boxing gear and the bandages and the gloves. I spar with my cousin. You win if you land the punches on the other fella. I like going boxing and even watching the matches. Katie Taylor is a good boxer for a girl. She got the gold for Ireland at the Olympics. I’d like to be a professional boxer when I grow up.’

– Peter
