Ireland has experienced many years of economic growth, being the second richest state within the European Union after Luxembourg. A number of legislative changes have being implemented, some with a positive impact on Travellers` lives, others clearly negative. An array of institutional arrangements has been put in place over the last decade, both Traveller specific and mainstream, which have the potential to significantly improve the situation of Travellers in Ireland. Yet these arrangement are too frequently marred by a lack of political will and the necessary `teeth` to deliver the required outcomes.
