I am talking about Irish Gypsies, or Travelers as they are more commonly referred to. They are also sometimes called tinkers or knackers, which refers to services that were traditionally provided by them. Tinkering being the mending of tinware (pots and pans) and knackering being the collection of dead or old horses for slaughter. Pikey is yet another, but apparently more derogatory term for the travelers.

Traveller Boy Ballinasloe Fair. www.irelandonvide... Irish Travellers, also called Tinkers or Gypsies, are a traditionally itinerant people of ethnic Irish origin. They live mostly in Ireland as well as having large numbers in the United Kingdom and in the United States. Those in the United States are Travellers who left Ireland, mostly during the period between 1845 and 1860 during the Great Famine.

In 1965, Alen MacWeeney came upon an encampment of itinerants in a waste ground by the Cherry Orchard Fever Hospital outside Dublin. Then called tinkers and later formally styled Travellers (as they preferred to call themselves) by the Irish government, they were living in hard-used by richly coloured caravans, ramshackle sheds, and time-worn tents.

My great-grandmother's family were Irish travellers in the 1800s. In 1965, Alen MacWeeney came upon an encampment of itinerants in a waste ground by the Cherry Orchard Fever Hospital outside Dublin. Then called tinkers and later formally styled Travellers (as they preferred to call themselves) by the Irish government, they were living in hard-used by richly coloured caravans, ramshackle sheds, and time-worn tents.

Brigid was an Irish, Celtic Goddess who was worshipped as the one who could aid people in survival against all odds. When Christianity came to Ireland, she was somehow able to become both St. Brigid, and also maintain her identity as a Pagan Goddess. Pretty nifty, wouldn't you say?
"It is often the woman, as happened in the life of St Bridget and Ulf, who with her religious sensitivity, delicacy and gentleness succeeds in persuading her husband to follow a path of faith. I am thinking with gratitude of the many women who, day after day, illuminate their families with their witness of Christian life, in our time too." -Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
Brigid, the Pagan Goddess of Ireland, became the revered Catholic Saint Brigid. Brigid was supposedly born in Kildare, meaning “church of the oak.” The two great influences on Irish spirituality are Christianity and Paganism. Her Feast day is the 1st of February, the start of Spring in the pagan Calendar. She is often associated with Daffodils and reeds, which are made into a St. Brigid's Crosses.

Irish Travellers in 1946. They are often referred to by the terms tinkers, knackers or itinerants in Ireland, while in other countries the term gypsies or didicoy is used to describe the community. Travellers refer to themselves as Minceir or Pavees in their own language or in Irish as an Lucht Siúil, meaning literally "the walking people".
