Workshop on CANT during Heritage Week

To celebrate #LivingHeritage, Oein de Bharduin will host a workshop on CANT – the Traveller language on Thursday 17 August, 10.30am at Pavee Point.

This will be a great chance for Travellers and members of the general public to find out more about a language that is still very much part of Traveller culture and identity today.

Oein is a published author of Minceir/ Traveller Folklore, and a long-standing member of many Traveller organisations such as a past vice Chair of the Irish Traveller Movement, Council member of Miniceir Whidden and originating member of Tome Tori, the Gammon-Cant speaking group.

Drop in to our Centre During Heritage Week

As part of our recent archival survey we found a lovely set of exhibition photos of a Traveller wedding from 1968 which we will have on view.  We also found some great copperware, beady pockets and lots of old newspaper articles that show the different ways Travellers were treated in the media. And more!

Drop in to Pavee Point any week-day morning 10 – 1pm during #HeritageWeek and see rediscovered material from our collection.
No booking necessary. We are just off Mountjoy Square, Dublin 1. See our location here.
