Enjoying the sunshine at Marble Hill beach will become a more inclusive experience for people with the launch of a new beach wheelchair today.
This Tuesday afternoon will see the introduction of Donegal’s fourth beach wheelchair at the stunning seaside hotspot near Dunfanaghy.
The specially adapted wheelchairs offer users autonomy to cross over difficult terrain, or a third party can assist by pushing the bar.
The wheelchairs are currently available at Carrickfinn, Rathmullan and Downings. Booking details are available at http://www.donegalcoco.ie/services/environment/blueflagbeachesgreencoast/, with booking for the Carrickfinn facility made by contacting Donegal Airport
The launch of this newest beach wheelchair at Marble Hill is part of Donegal County Council’s initiative to improve beach access for visitors of all abilities. Thirteen beaches along our coast are now fully wheelchair accessible and work is continuing on more beaches.
Details on how to book the wheelchair at Marble Hill will be released following the launch.Tags:
