: 23/09/2020 - 15:28

Irish Travellers face some of the worst discrimination of six Traveller and Roma communities across Europe.

That's one of the findings of a major report by the European Fundamental Rights Agency.

It found 31 per cent of traveller households are in acute poverty.

While the community had the lowest employment rates in the survey.

Jaroslav Kling is Research Officer at the EUFRA Roma and Migrant Integration Sector.
