They probably do. They are just using one term to describe the Irish travelling families who 99% of the time cause trouble wherever they are, think they have a god given right to other peoples property and **** up green belt land whilst their kids use local services that they don't contribute a penny towards in tax of any sort.
Even in ****ing Chiswick in a bar we worked in, you would get 8 and 9 year old traveller girls coming in on Halloween asking for money with their Mum sat outside waiting for them. When we tried to get them to leave as it was 21's and above, these ****ing kids would say "Touch me an' I'll cry ****".
I have never liked to generalise about a group of people, but I've never met a single Irish traveller or heard about one from anyone I know who isn't a pain in the ****.
