The craft of Traveller tinsmithing is being highlighted as part of National Heritage Week 2020. The National Heritage Week website features two videos on the craft.

The Pavee Point video shows a recent initiative to pass on the skills of tinsmithing. The second video from the National Museum of Ireland features footage from the 1960s of tinsmith Bernard Mongan making tinware at the side of the road. https://www.heritageweek.ie/projects/video-the-craft-of-traveller-tinsmithing

Pavee Point Traveller & Roma Centre was delighted to work with the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the National Museum of Ireland to ensure that Traveller tinsmithing featured on this platform.
