A three-part documentary series which gives a unique insight into the lives of Travellers will air on CRC FM on Monday evening June 25 at 8 o’clock.
The series, which is funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland ‘Sound & Vision Fund’ will feature three 40-minute programmes that investigate a range of issues relating to the Travelling community in the Mayo region, including issues of religion, Traveller culture and perception of the community in general.
The series actively incorporates the Travelling community both in the production and presentation of the series. It is produced by Ronan Courell from Castlebar who explained that it aims to educate the settled community on the various elements of Traveller life in Ireland.
“The series makes for very interesting listening and I hope that the general public will tune in,” he said.
The first programme co-incides with Traveller Pride Week which aims to promote the cultures, traditions and concerns of the Travelling community in Ireland. Tune in to CRC FM on 102.9 fm.
