Traveller Feuds

This documentary examines the problem of feuding in the travelling community in Ireland, the level of violence seems to be at an all time high with incidents including a petrol bomb being thrown at young girl face.

One way the traveler’s have of settling feuds is to part take in bare knuckle boxing matches, these are meant to put an end to any future violence but this film asks the question do they really help to stop feuding?

We also see how shoutout videos created by the traveler’s themselves and posted online play a big part in continuing the cycle of violence. We explore how this violence affects such a small community and the stereotypes which spawn from it?
