Media coverage on Traveller related incidents can be excessive

The legal policy officer with the Irish Traveller Movement says the media coverage of Traveller related incidents can be sensationalised. Davy Joyce was speaking following the murder of Michael Faulkner in Tralee on Monday night. It appeared Mr Faulkner died following stab wounds. Some media reports allege that Mr Faulkner`s death may have been as a result of a family feud. Davy Joyce says media coverage of family feuds amongst members of the travelling community can be excessive.
