Cheevers calls on City Hall to buy beach wheelchairs

“Residents and visitors with special needs the opportunity to enjoy the city’s beaches the same as able bodied residents and visitors do”

A city councillor is calling on the local authority to purchase beach wheelchairs to improve accessibility for people with disabilities.

Fianna Fáil Galway City East councillor, Alan Cheevers, said the Galway City Council should provide all terrain beach wheelchairs as they would allow “residents and visitors with special needs the opportunity to enjoy the city’s beaches the same way as able bodied residents and visitors do”.

He said the chairs could be operated by the council through a booking system, and he pointed out that a similar scheme has already been adopted by the Cork County Council.
