Sligo woman Geraldine Lynch has been named the county’s Local Hero by Sligo Retail Park for her work in championing the plight of people with invisible disabilities at Ireland West Airport, Knock.
Geraldine, whose mission is to eliminate stigma and discrimination for those with invisible disabilities, topped the search for Sligo’s most deserving community worker.
Sligo Retail Park’s asset manager Sigma Retail Partners launched the Local Heroes competition as part of their 2019 ‘Do Well by Doing Good’ corporate responsibility programme.
And Geraldine was adjudged the most deserving of the award for her campaign at Ireland West Airport, Knock, to ensure accessible toilet signage highlighting that not every disability is visible.
She has now received a prize of €1,000 from Sligo Retail Park towards her work.
