Surely after MDH's whopping Mandate the Stores would be inundated with requests for this "#inclusitivitywear", maybe even Peter bein an Entrepreneur could start the Ball rolling with Production?picoms4

Yes Travellers are Gaels. The thing is though that metal working castes/clans/groups in nearly all traditional cultures, and this has been documented (The Forge and Crucible by Mircea Eliade is a good place to start for those interested in looking further into this) were a "people apart", Travellers were long known as Tinkers because they were metal workers. The thing is that they had a very definite part in the Irish society and economy which has been stolen from them by the "march of progress"- some adapted well to the situation, some have adapted with great difficulty and some have adapted terribly. Personally I get on with Travellers easily and am not sure that Capitalist modernity has been good for Ireland as a whole.
