A study done at Univ. College of Dublin has discovered that the Travelling Community dates back further than previously thought.  They found that instead of originating at time of the Great Hunger, they actually split genetically from the settled population 360 years previously. Travellers make up 0.6% (30,000) of the population in the Republic. Genetic studies show that they are of Irish ancestry.
