About the Image
Carrowbrowne Halting Site, Galway, Ireland.
Billy, Steven, and Paddy, three Irish Traveler Boys from the Carrowbrowne Halting Site, use an abandoned car as their playground. The boys have no natural areas to play and so display their boredom, frustration, and aggression by destroying the car. The Carrowbrowne halting site, a rat-infested site is located on the outskirts of Galway city next to a waste management site. Although the site was intended to be temporary, it has now become their permanent area of living.
