Quotes from the podcast:

A generational impact of trauma that is in the island of Ireland. There’s this thing of trauma that we deal with through substances and alcohol, its why we glorify alcohol.

Our alcohol addiction goes back to colonialism, it’s how we were painted, we started to believe the propaganda.

11% of travellers die by suicide. It’s something that needs to be addressed.

We hold the keys to Gaelic Ireland. A lot of our traditions of family, our community spirit, the way we live and die for each other, this is the ancient tuath that the Brits tried to break up.

Two-thirds of Gaelic Ireland was nomadic. The Brits tried to settle the population for tax purposes. Make them individual based as opposed to community based which was Gaelic.

Stop cutting mental health budgets, which they are doing every year.

We need a cultural revolution around mental health.

Funding needs to be put in place. We need more community centers. Community centers needs to be a hub of creativity.

There’s huge studies shows creativity is a huge component to battle mental health.

Most of these Unionists who block Irish language come from Scotland. They are Gaelic speakers. Let’s all embrace this language.

We’re Gaels, not Anglo Saxons. There’s more Anglo-Saxons in Dublin than up north.

Protestants down south are prosperous and are included more than anybody. We are as inclusive as ever.

The butchers apron is a flag that flew across the world. 150 million people were killed by the British Empire, more than any empire. They raped robbed pillaged slaved and murdered.

The biggest myth is women get oppressed by men and get beat up. Women are actually the leaders in the community. They look after children and financials. They are smarter. 90% of our activists are women.

My grandmother Chrissie Ward, formerly Donoghue, and her sister Nan Joyce were two of the greatest activist we ever had.

If it wasn’t for the women, we would have been obliterated already.

My brothers are with settled women, my two female cousins are with settled men. Is it frowned upon in some communities? Yes, but not all. There is so much diversity within travellers.

Travelers originate in Ireland, that’s our origin, culturally Irish. Tyson Furey mother is an Irish gypsy from Belfast, and his father is an Irish traveler from Galway so he’s a mix of both of them.

There is a lot of fear between both communities. We each have a lot of natural biases against each other. The problem is people look to confirm their own biases.
