Written by Travellers for Travellers and the wider community, Voice of the Traveller serves as a window and guarantees its readers an authentic view of a community whose coverage in mainstream tabloids tends to be unrepresented and generally negative. Our regional reporters challenge the stereotypes and negative issues that have constantly arisen and only served to limit the potential growth of our community.
Voice of the Traveller magazine first launched in 1991 and it is the only magazine dedicated to profiling Traveller life today. The magazine has recently been made available in newsagents across Ireland and Northern Ireland and is becoming more popular with every issue released.
Regional news and information on changes to the law as well as details of upcoming events keep our readers both in Ireland and abroad informed on what’s happening within the community. The magazine is hailed as a vital information tool to those separated from the community or living abroad.
For those that are interested in reading the other side of the story this is a must read.
