The decision by the Irish Wheelchair Association to close the Cuisle Centre in Donamon, county Roscommon by the end of this month, has come as a shock to the area, according to local councillor Liam Callaghan.

The Fine Gael councillor is now calling on the Association to re-think and reverse its decision to close the facility that serves as a respite centre for wheelchair users.The facility employs over 40 people and they were notified on Friday last of the imminent closure of the facility.

Cllr Callaghan says rather than close the facility every effort should be made to develop and expand it.

Speaking to Midwest Radio’s John Morley,  Cllr Callaghan says there is widespread support from the local community to preserve the facility.
