The Children of Carrowbrowne

The Longtermproject "Children of Carrowbrowne" documents the life of Traveller children in Galway, Ireland. The Traveller Community is Ireland largest minority, known for their nomadic way of life.

As Ireland’s largest minority group Travellers are often ostracized from the Irish society for their nomadic way of life and pushed to the periphery of urban spaces. On the outskirts of Galway situated right next to the city dump is the Carrowbrowne Halting Site, home to eight Traveller families and their children. My longterm project "The Children of Carrowbrowne" offers a glimpse into the environment and daily life of young Traveller children.
