Joint Oireachtas Committee on Key Issues Affecting Travellers

Between September and December 2019 a Joint Oireachtas Committee on Key Issues Affecting Travellers met to discuss the issues of Mental Health, Health, Education and Employment. Due to the dissolution of the Dáil and Seanad in early 2020 the final issue of Accommodation was not discussed. The Committee was chaired by Collette Kelleher.
