    In UK Gypsy can also refer to Irish Travellers.

      Not sure about other places, but in my home village (where there is a significant Traveller and Romani population), the two groups usually mix. an example would be my Romani great-grandmother marrying a man of Irish Traveller descent.

    She calls herself Gypsy a lot in her bios. I’m pretty sure she has Romani heritage.
