Ten internationally recognised human rights are being breached on a daily basis on the Traveller sites and group housing schemes in the city and county, a major new survey will reveal tomorrow when it is unveiled in Galway.

The first in-depth peer-led study of the appalling standard of Traveller sites and group housing schemes, which will highlight the blatant violation of basic human rights, will appropriately be launched at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, at NUI Galway.

The survey was undertaken by the Galway Traveller Community in collaboration with Galway Traveller Movement and will illustrate the widespread sub-standard, dangerous, and unhealthy accommodation conditions on 16 Traveller sites and group housing schemes in Galway city and county.
