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.......
