On Roma or Romanian. I've heard both on the radio, Assumed it was same.

Roma = Gypsy iirc.

Romanian would just be someone from Romania.

Thanks for the clarification. Pretty sure they were Romanians though Im certain I heard them refered to as Roma at one stage which would seem to be incorrect.
If I was witty, I'm sure you'd be laughing by now.

wait are they Roma or Romanian *confused*

I'm pretty sure there are more Roma (Gypsies) in Northern Ireland than there are Romanians. 

Romania is part of the EU, many Romanians seeks jobs in Western Europe, and the prevalence of English in international media makes the UK a top choice destination.
