"Our parents and our parents before them, and their grandparents before them, that's the way they were brought up in life, as travellers, and that's the way we want to be, we want to be in sites and we want to be in trailers and that's just the way we are.
I wonder if we got offered houses next to half these settled people, would they stand up and if they knew we were a traveller getting offered a house next to them, I think it would be the same way they wouldn't want us living.
It's not because of the sites it's because they're against travellers completely. It's not where the sites are getting built they just don't want us and they never will, they'll never accept us and that's just the way it's always going to be"
