Clondalkin Travellers Development Group (CTDG) was established in 1989 to address the needs of Travellers in the Clondalkin area. CTDG is a partnership between Travellers and non-Travellers working to promote the rights of Travellers as a nomadic ethnic group within Irish society. Clondalkin has a large population of Travellers. Travellers in Clondalkin face similar issues as those experienced at national level. Since 1989, CTDG have spent significant time developing a model of community work, which meets the needs of Travellers and responds to issues as identified by Travellers. CTDG works from a community development model of community work. It is a mechanism through which Travellers can collectively address the issues that are affecting their community. It is a rights-based approach which values the distinct, social, cultural and economic needs of Travellers as a nomadic ethnic group in Ireland.
