Accessibility Comments about the Civic Offices by a recent visitor who was using a wheelchair."The disabled facilities in the County Council were excellent. The wheelchair ramp was very easy to use unlike other places where it is like climbing Mt. Everest! The counters were low enough for people in wheel chairs to use and there was a rail on the door to the council chamber along with the other doors and the lift. The County Council seemed to pay attention to the smallest details to cater for the disabled for example the lift was very easy to ‘reverse’ out of which can often be difficult in places. Also the exterior automatic doors were very useful as you do not have to ask someone to do it for me. Overall the disability access in the Council Offices was excellent in comparison to a lot of places in Dungarvan.
I cannot say the same for the rest of Dungarvan as some places are impossible to access…… For example on one part of the footpath beside the Ard Scóil, on the left corner some Einstein put a telephone pole smack bamb in the middle of the footpath! This means that I have to get off and back on the footpath which is very inconvenient and very annoying. Also a few parts of the footpath crossing roads have a flat bits at one side and not at the other which is very irritating and dangerous as I have to go on the road until I get to a flat bit. Also some shop owners ignore their entrances and have steps or steep slopes into them to make their premises’ inaccessible. However there are places in Dungarvan that do pay great attention to the disabled and they should be acknowledged for that."
