State to recognise ethnicity of Travellers
The State will tomorrow recognise the ethnic status of the Travelling community.
An Oireachtas Justice Committee published a report in the last Dail term recommending that the State should recognise the ethnicity of the travelling community.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny previously said he was open to such a move.
Today it emerged the Taoiseach will make a statement in the Dail tomorrow evening on the issue.
The Taoiseach's spokesman confirmed Mr Kenny's decision to recognise the ethnicity of Travellers at the briefing this evening.
