"No communities in Ireland have been as consistently tarred and feathered as the Travellers and the Roma. If a lie is repeated often enough, it becomes the "truth". One of the true triumphs of Traveller and Romani life in Ireland in recent years is the culture's ability to be tremendously resilient in the face of naked racism. Critical to the ongoing success of Pavee Point is the fact that for 30 years, the identifying issues confronting not only Irish Travellers but amongst wider Irish society too, from the top of the political ecehlon to the smaller, more anonymous corners. Here are the facts: the Travellers and the Roma are ethnic minorities. They are, and have been, subject to racism in Ireland. For us to move forward as a vibrant, thinking democracy, we must acknowledge those two essential pillars and open the gateposts from there." -- Colum McCann
