Independent Councillor Geraldine Donohue welcomes the audit of Disabled Parking Bays in Gort Town by Galway County Council following a deputation to the Loughrea Municipal District by Peter Gohery and Martin Moran last June where both men spoke of the various issues in the Loughrea Municipal District which creates difficulties for persons with disabilities, one of the issues raised related to parking facilities.
The Joint Committee on Disability Matters is dismayed with the lack of action and delay by Government in introducing a fair and adequate personal transport scheme for people with disabilities that supports their needs and allows them to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life as required by the UNCRPD.
