Beach wheelchair pilot project to be based at Rathmullan

beach wheelchair

A beach wheelchair will be available on Rathmullan beach from this weekend as a pilot scheme.

The special wheelchair is being provided by Donegal County Council and the Loughs Agency and will cost in the region of €5,000.

Initially it was thought the wheelchair would go to the Inishowen area, but Rathmullan has now been confirmed as the location.

Councillor Jimmy Kavanagh first proposed this almost a year ago after seeing a similar project in County Wexford.

He's hopeful it will extended to other beaches across Donegal in the future.......
