Short Answer

According to a report presented to the Social Sciences and Public Policy conference held in Galway;

“The greatest degree of segregation is experienced by the Travelling community, followed by people in local authority housing, followed by non-nationals and ethnic minorities.  There is relatively little segregation around social class or status.” -'Ireland After Nama'
