Another name for a knacker, pikey, itinerant or traveller. Or all four. Originated from the name of the traveller's union Pavee Point.
Shit, pavees coming into Chawke's now.
Has any of ye even met a pikey(but i prefer to be called a traveller)just to set the record straight,they dont marry their brothers or sisters,as ye know it alls stuipidly say.I know a few buffers and ye are the most ignorant and racist people i've ever had the misfortune to meet.
When used to refer to either Irish Travellers or Gypsies, it is considered to have racist connotations; even when it refers to others, many people still consider it to be derogatory and offensive. "Pikey" is equally frequently used as an adjective
Knackers are Irish travellers Not gypsies(romni people) although the two communities do mix and travel with eachother. Knackers are from indiginuious people of Ireland who have just choise to live a nomadic life style they are not all scumbags or drunks they are also sometimes refered to as Tinkers,gippos,creamers or as they call them selfs PAVEES or pavos
You can tell a Irish gippo froma knacker right away the knackers have pink/red faces and dress shitty the gippos are darker skined and dress nicer plus many gippos have settled and do not live the nomadic life style for a gippo its their ethnicity not just their way of life
The average person in Ireland refers to them as knackers these days. They were previously known as tinkers.
They are inbred due to a mistrust of settled people.
They are always looking for a way to make easy money, the same as every other common thug.
In years past that would have meant stealing lead or tarp.
These days it usually means robbing the elderly or selling poor quality drugs.
The Pikeys stole Tommy's mothers TV when he brought her to mass.
Acronym for "Members of the Travelling Community" / "Members of the Traveller Community". A non-derogatory reference that's less of a mouthful than the "official" title.
MTCs are a traditionally nomadic people of Irish origin living predominantly in Ireland, Great Britain, and the United States. Go MTCs!
Travellers; an Irish subgroup which has the sheer neck to try and designate itself as a "race". They are the Taliban of Ireland; nomadic, Catholic Fundamentalist Separatists who make a living running scams on "settled people", or normal Western-educated, mortgage-paying members of society, who the knackers call "hufferbuffers" or "buffers" i.e. meaning stupid and gullible, in the knacker language called Shelta. Shelta is a made up language designed to hide scamming plans from normal society and they do not teach it to anyone non-Traveller for obvious reasons.
Knackers like to designate themselves as a separate race in order to perpetrate a continuing scam on society. The designations of Travellers (knackers) as poor and underprivileged is a complete lie; they have money coming out their ears and they hide it from the authorities. The dirty caravan trailer they live in sporadically, is a means of hiding the five-bedroom house they have in the neighbouring county.
Knackers are a male-dominant society and they regularly beat women into submission. Knacker women rate a man's fitness by the man's ability to physically subdue them.
Knackers are ruthlessly hateful in their ideology and they are little Catholic clones of Fred Phelps. Testimony of severe beatings targeting the gay and lesbian community, the international community, and the protestant community are all accurate.
I used to have money set aside for my wife's funeral, but the knackers got it when I thought they were going to fix the plumbing.
