As the July daily temperatures embrace the popular sunny south-east reputation, a pleasant beachside ceremony at Rosslare Strand on Tuesday morning marked the launch of the new Wheelchair Mat.
Cllr Lisa McDonald, Chair of Wexford Local Community Development Committee and the Rosslare Municipal District said “it was great to see the launch this morning of the new Wheelchair Mat.
Cllr McDonald told WexfordLocal.com; “Dr. Vivian Rath (from Morriscastle) came to me with this idea last year and I am delighted today to see it come to fruition so members of the disabled community will have further access to the beach!”
This mat is the second of its kind in the country and the first in Wexford. While it is a pilot project it is hoped that we will see similar mats around the county in time.
