Heritage and Culture

TNC is committed to promoting greater pride and understanding about Traveller heritage and culture.

Among other things, we aim to:

  • Promote culture and pride in identity within the Traveller community
  • Strengthen awareness of Traveller identity within the settled community and enhance cross-community awareness and mutual respect
  • Build the capacity of Travellers to protect and strengthen aspects of their culture through self-organisation.

Traveller Pride and Cultural Events

Each year TNC organises a Traveller Pride event and local groups host their own activities in the community throughout the year. Check our Facebook page for details of upcoming events or contact your local Traveller Community Health Worker or Community Health Development Workers if you wish to get in touch with/start your own Traveller group in North Cork.
