Travelling folk still visit our district and they are called tinkers.
They are very poor and they sell saucepans and cans and they mend leaking utensils. Some people buy from them. They obtain their supplies in the local towns. They remain two nights and sometimes longer in every place. They are not welcomed. They sleep on the roadsides in caravans and tents. They beg food, money and clothing. They travel on foot, on bicycles, on donkeys, and on carts.
Sometimes they travel in bands but usually in families.
The McDonagh's, Reillys and Lawrences usually visit our district.
