Looking for a Site


Following their eviction from Dale Farm, the Irish Travellers who were living there are having to do something they were hoping to avoid: travel. Where can they travel to, though?

Given the difficulty that the authorities are likely to have evicting the protestors from the steps of St Paul's, if I were the travellers I'd be looking at other church lands in London. They could settle for years! As Catholics, Westminster Cathedral would be a good place to start. Perhaps MPs might think harder about increasing the provision of sites if there were a few caravans parked outside their offices in Victoria.

I wonder if there is a mirror community of English Travellers wandering around Ireland?
