Welcome to Irish Traveller Movement

The Irish Traveller Movement (ITM) is a national network of organisations and individuals working within the Traveller community.
ITM was established in 1990 and now has over eighty Traveller organisations from all parts of Ireland in its membership. The Irish Traveller Movement consists of a partnership between Travellers and settled people committed to seeking full equality for Travellers in Irish society. This partnership is reflected in all of the structures of ITM.

Notice to all the Members of the Irish Traveller Movement

The Irish Traveller Movement is delighted to annouce that the Member section of the ITM website is now up and running.

This section is a place for ITM members to access a whole host of information about the organisation as well as a place to share ideas, contact your ITM representatives and to engage in collective discussions.

The Member section is limited to Full ITM members only. Each Traveller organisation can have as many log in details as required (staff, volunteers and management) as long as each member of a local Traveller group abides by the terms & conditions (which are mailed out with passwords).
