PODCAST: Roscommon Travellers speak out about ‘disgraceful’ accommodation

After an interview with a Traveller in Castlerea that was broadcast last week, in which concerns were raised about the quality of the site, Let’s Talk today featured two interviews with two more Travellers who gave an insight into accommodation in the county.

They were also very critical of the standard of the housing.

Winnie Corcoran revealed how she raised her seven children in a one-bedroom unit in Torpan Beg halting site at Ballyforan.
