Try to overcome your revulsion/boredom/indifference or whatever it is that so many of you apparently well-meaining activists and Indymedia readers do when it comes to this issue, judging from the the general level of interest that these reports usually get. Five thousand comments on the disctinction between the SP and the SWP, about four on rights for people with disability. Pardon my bluffness but how about cutting us all some slack in this corner, eh? Maybe even give us some of your time and effort? read full story / add a comment

We're all aware of the contempt with which people with disability and their families are regarded by the state. And as if the present government were not already unpopular enough among this community of people, they have decided arbitrarily to slash the Carers Allowance which mothers of children with disability are entitled to. read full story / add a comment

An inspiration: Dermot Brannick in 'Walking' documentary
international / health / disability issues / opinion/analysis Thursday June 15, 2006 19:04 by Karla Healion   image 1 image
A young Irish man is flying to Arizona today (June 15) to begin an amazingly difficult journey of recovery from arthritus that's had him on crutches for almost a decade. His ordeal is being documented, and the film, 'Walking', will completed in 2008.
Nothing is more incredible, moving and noteworthy than a person's determination to show the world that he will never give up, will share every experience and- most of all-can recover one hundred per cent when the odds are against him. read full story / add a comment

Mental illness and the treatment of mental illness have become conflated in the minds of lay people and professional alike. It is an astute practitioner who can distinguish the effects of treatment from the effects of illness when they look at a mental patient. In my humble opinion standard treatment contributes more to stigma and isolation of the mental patient than any underlying illness he or she may suffer from. read full story / add a comment

From Monday or Tuesday May 1st-2nd, a patient information pack containing information about Parkinson's, about some of the complications that can occur and how they are best treated, and about the Parkinson's Association of Ireland, may b collected by every person with Parkinson's (or someone else on their behalf) from their local pharmacy. THis has been a huge project, and we hope to reach EVERY person with Parkinson's. There is no cost for this folder; it is free, and hopefully will be read from cover to cover! More than Meets the Eye - that's the campaign title - there is more than meets the eye to Parkinson's. read full story / add a comment

For the past 11 weeks our Department of Education and Science and one of our Health Authorities have been in the High court spending millions of taxpayers’ money fighting to ensure that a young boy with special needs no longer gets the education that has been of great benefit to him over the last two years. I do not have to picture the spectacle, I know it well.

I don’t know the last time the Irish Examiner bothered to write about the subject of disability but it is a certainty that the issue is not a priority for the paper’s editors in the normal run of events and it has negligible coverage in its pages. For instance, if you compare its coverage of the subject of horseracing or business issues, disability trails well behind either despite its significance to huge numbers of people.

Can anyone tell me as to why it is so difficult to have a basic need catered to regarding accessibility in
Ireland? In this day and age you would think firstly that pure and utter logic would prevail, but with my expieriences, and with the so called "Celtic Tiger" we are years away from being a society that open doors. read full story / add a comment

I wish to express my serious concerns regarding the recent publication by the H.S.E. of the Hynes report on the death of Peter McKenna and related matters. Peter McKenna was 60 years old and had Down syndrome. He lived in St Michael's House until he was moved against the family's wishes to Leas Cross Nursing Home where he died. read full story / add a comment
