A distinct nomadic Irish ethnic group known to have been in Ireland for centuries, for their own distinct dialect (possibly their own language) and for a certain degree of xenophobia. Synonyms are "Irish Gypsy" and "Tinker" among others. They are not believed to be ethnicly related to other Gypsies though are thought to have a similar lifestyle.
Murphy Village S.C. is known to be home to a few hundred Irish Traveler families.
