Someone said :
I don't get the problem with traveler's tombs. Why single them out?
They like things in life to be big and colorful like their wedding etc so they like to show off how well they made it in life. Not all travelers have a chance to earn a good leaving and get a good education because of this kind of discrimination so when they do why not show that they made it till the end?
a) how are these massive ostentatious headstones paid for ?
one of the reasons it is illegal
in most cemeteries in Ireland to exceed a certain height or format is most honest working settled people cannot afford garish monstrosities for headstones, infact the cost of a memorial and funeral is often enough to near bankrupt most families, coming often hot on the heels of medical expenses.
so ordinary working folk erect legal
sized headstones, so that no ones deceased loved one is overshadowed by undignified eye sores
b) @eithne answer honestly, how would you feel if two huge illegal monstrosities
were erected either side of a deceased loved ones legal memorial? be honest now...
Laws are laws, its not discrimination
