The novel suggestion of introducing ‘wheelchair accessible’ park benches was made by Galway City Fine Gael Councillor Clodagh Higgins.
To help the disabled get that prized middle seat?
Or deter the homeless from having a kip?
We may never know.
I’m a wheelchair user and I really don’t get this. Like, we have somewhere to sit…we can sit beside benches or in front facing those sitting ob them. Looks like hostile architecture to me.
