This recording of traveller women’s stories took place in the Community Hall in Kilkenny. I spoke to Kathleen and Margaret Carthy, Josie Cash and Kathleen and Judy Harty. The first interview was with Josie Cash (38) who is married with ten children and the recording provides some fascinating stories of the travelling community. Kathleen Harty (43) was reared in a barrel-shaped caravan and she speaks about the customs and traditions of the travellers. Finally, Kathleen and Margaret Carthy speak about the crafts and culture of the travelling people.
