It always saddens me when women of a certain race are gorgeous when young but wallets when old. Black and Russian women come to mind. But especially Russian women. No matter how lonely I get I will always refrain from purchasing a Russian mail order bride.

Travellers is the "polite" term for itinerants, usually called knackers, cream crackers or gippos. They are technically gypsies, but the term "traveller" doesn't really describe them, as they do very little actual travelling, and once they set up in a place they more often than not stay there, until/unless they're moved on. There are some official "halting sites" where they're allowed stay (think the Indian Reservations and you're close enough) but they often don't like to remain there. With good reason: last year a major fire killed a whole family due to the poor almost non-existent safety measures at one site.

They live in caravans and trailers, fix pots, old cars, so forth. Their many dogs (dirty and often vicious though not always) run loose as do their children, who are also invariably dirty if not always vicious. They don't seem to believe in hygiene and their favourite pastime is to go door to door selling various useless items (unbranded perfume, knockoff DVDs, towels, knives etc) that nobody in their right mind would ever want. They use the tried and trusted trader method of barter - "Only a fiver sir! No? Four then! Four Euro! Ah, okay.. three." They do not go away easily, and the best way to deal with them, rude as it is, is to close the door in their faces.

Various attempts have been made to rehouse them, but they always wreck the houses they get and end up bringing down the tone of the neighbourhood. They are dirty and they don't care. They're also loud, and frequently drunk (though you would think such would not matter to Irish people, it does). They get into a lot of fights.

Prejudice against travellers was once described as "Ireland's apartheid", and while I would not disagree, I am, and probably always be, racist when it comes to knackers. I'm not proud of it, but neither am I ashamed of it. Almost every Irish person will tell you the same.

Black and Russian women both age perfectly. It's Filipinas that get leathery.

Explains a lot, lack of hygiene and fighting, there was a family of them on our road as kids and the kids were not very nice to us. They weren't there for long if I remember correctly, one week they had a house then before you knew it, they were gone.

You get them a lot in caravans in the public parks here, probably not the same extent as in Ireland, but you see them and you can understand why residents don't like it. My sister's old place had a lot of trouble with them.

Russian women I'm claiming by limited experience but older black women just seem to go pretty far downhill pretty quick. I don't know, we have pretty ugly women where I live so that probably colors my opinion, but old white women don't seem to be QUITE as ugly.

Oh we had a riot here, back in the day, when the cops tried to move them on. They claimed ground outside an old factory around a cut-down forest and honestly, you would fear walking past them as you came in. I mean, don't get me wrong: I'm sure there were good ones. I just never met other than loud, drunk, arrogant, belligerent and quite threatening ones myself.
