The need for better wheelchair accessibility along Ballina’s main streets has been highlighted by local Fianna Fail councillor Annie Mae Reape.

 The councillor raised the issue at the monthly meeting of Ballina Municipal District where she said wheelchair users had told her of their frustration in trying to get around on Tone Street and Gardner Street in the town centre.

Council Engineer Orla Burke said wheelchair accessibility is a priority for the town, but added that limited funding means progress can be slow.

Councillor Reape told Midwest News that she will continue to campaign for better access for the disabled in Ballina.
