In this first comprehensive and accessible history of Travelers in twentieth-century Ireland, Aoife Bhreatnach describes the people who traveled Irish roads, showing how and why they were distinguishable from settled people. She demonstrates that the alienation and increasing unpopularity of this cultural minority were a consequence of developments in state and sociely, the widening social gulf led to conflict over the distribution of resources, particularly of land and welfare. Becoming Conspicuous examines the circumstances that have shaped expressions of anti-Traveler prejudice, thus demonstrating some of the social implications of the evolution of urban and rural landscapes in twentieth-century Ireland.
