    In July 2012 the Navan Traveller Education Centre closed its doors for the last time. The centre had been providing learning and training opportunities to members of the Traveller community in Meath for over 20 years. This thesis asks the Reseach Question – Why did the Women of Navan Traveller Centre returned to learning following the closure of the Traveller Training Centre in Navan, Co Meath. This thesis challenges many of our preconcieved ideals concerning the motivations of Women in the Irish Traveller Community,and particularly why they accessed learning through the centre. In conjunction with the exploration of why the Traveller Women returned to learning this thesis will also explore the creation and evolution of the Navan Traveller Womens Development Group and the role it played in helping the women shape their own future
