A new book celebrating Traveller culture and identity-, which was written by Mayo children, will be launched tomorrow at the National Museum of Country Life in Turlough, Castlebar.

The book was compiled by pupils of Scoil Íosa and Scoil Pádraig national schools in Ballina, as well as young people using the services of the Involve youth project in Ballina.

"This Giant Tent" is the title of the book which was developed in response to an exhibition currently on display at the Turlough museum called Travellers Journey, and it explores Traveller culture and identity from the child's perspective.

This is the latest in a range of books published by Kids' Own Publishing Partnership, based in Sligo, which is the only dedicated publisher of books by children in Ireland.
