MEP MacManus visits Belmullet IWA and Erris Family and Community Support Centre
Sinn Féin MEP Chris MacManus recently visited the school leavers group at the Irish Wheelchair Association and the Erris Family and Community Support Centre in Belmullet. The Midlands Northwest representative praised both groups for their work in supporting the local community.
MEP MacManus said:
“I was pleased to get the opportunity to meet with the school leavers group in the at the Irish Wheelchair Association centre in Belmullet alongside my colleague Rosaleen Lally. 
“It was a very enjoyable discussion with the group, who were involved in a recent project highlighting the difficulties poorly designed footpaths and careless parking can create for people with disabilities. They gave a powerful presentation on the project and the accessibility issues they identified in the local community, and deserve huge praise for this work.
“It is incumbent on Mayo County Council and others to ensure that everybody can travel throughout our towns and villages with ease and these concerns must be taken on board.
“Rosaleen and I also met with Erris Family and Community Support Centre, a project she is heavily involved with, and spoke about their plans to deliver a family resource centre in Belmullet.
“Having met a number of resource centres across my constituency I know how valuable the service they provide is, particularly to more vulnerable and marginalised groups in our community.
“It would be a huge asset for the local area and I wish them every success going forward.
“I am looking forward to continuing to work with Rosaleen and Rose Conway-Walsh TD in the time ahead. ENDS
