The Traveller community is the largest minority in Ireland. "They are often ostracised because of their nomadic way of life and because of their culture," says photographer Tamara Eckhardt, speaking to RFI.

The Carrowbrowne Halting Site is located in the suburbs of the western city of Galway. It is home to eight Traveller families.

Tamara Eckhardt followed the daily life of the children of a Traveller family at the site.
