I'm an assistant editor at the Sunday World and author of The Outsiders: Exposing the Secretive World of Irish Travellers (Merlin Publishing 2006) which made it to No.2 on the Irish best-sellers list. I also wrote The Fraudsters: How Con Artists Steal Your Money (Merlin Publishing 2008).
My third book Gypsy Empire, Uncovering the Hidden World of Ireland's Travellers is being published by Transworld Ireland on 26 September, 2013.

The Outsiders, first published in 2006, uncovers the secretive world of Irish Travellers where prejudice, crime and a burning loyalty to family, clan and tradition have made the community stand apart. Eamon Dillon investigates Irish Travellers and their worldwide drive to succeed - a hunger that has taken some Traveller gangs into the realms of fraud, bare-knuckle boxing and violent feuds.
