This afternoon.

Kildare Street, Dublin 2.

Protesters outside Leinster House chant ‘Save Cuisle’.

Roscommon County Councillors have called for the Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) to postpone the closure of the Cuisle Holiday Centre at Donamon, County Roscommon for 12 months to allow for funding to be secured to save the centre.

At an emergency meeting of Roscommon County Council on Monday, they also warned they were seeking legal advice about possibly obtaining an injuction and accused the IWA of planning to close the fully wheelchair accessible facility for some time.

    This is heartbreaking. How can an organisation called the Irish Wheelchair Association do that to the people they are supposed to represent… where’s the future? I wonder how much the board members are raking in?

      Personally I think the decision to close Cuisle is regrettable and IWA should have consulted with people with disabilities and considered alternatives.

      It’s a fantastic service with a brilliant local team. However, I must point out that the WA Board members are not paid. You can verify this on the IWA website.
