More than 600,000 people are living with a disability in Ireland.  Two in three of us know or care for an immediate family member, a friend or a neighbour living with a disability.

Disability is the biggest issue of our time but it does not receive the political leadership, attention and commitment needed to make Ireland a truly modern, truly equal Republic.

People living with disabilities, and their families, encounter inequalities, barriers and biases daily, from accessing public transport and health services, to enrolling in education or finding a job. Almost everything is more difficult and has more barriers if you are living with a disability.

Does this seem fair to you?

In the 2016 election I am campaigning for an end to this type of unfairnesss – to end discrimination against people with disabilities.

I am committed to making Ireland a fairer place to live and make disability a priority in the new Programme for Government.
