The Outsiders is a unique glimpse into the secretive world of Irish travellers where prejudice, crime and a burning loyalty to family, clan and tradition has made the community impervious to external influences. Over a four year period, investigative journalist Eamon Dillon has documented modern Irish travellers. He reveals their worldwide drive to succeed, which often takes them beyond the bounds of acceptable behaviour. From Bejing to Texas, Longford to London, Irish travellers have shown an incredible ability to surmount the obstacles of racism, ignorance and physical hardship to become modern day pavee princes who refuse to the bend to the arbitrary rules of a society where they remain 'the outsiders'.
