Legless In Dublin will be detailing the levels of wheelchair friendliness in restaurants, cafés, bars, hotels, shops, cinemas, parks and pretty much anywhere I visit.
I will list out ramps, bathroom sizes, the spaces between tables, wideness of doors, if there are steps or not and the general helpfulness of staff.
I'm Louise Bruton and I started using a wheelchair two years ago. Before that, I used crutches full time. When I was 17, I had my right foot amputated and from that point, many jokes about me being legless (because I liked the odd tipple) were thrown about. Well, the joke was in their face because before the amputation, I had a pretty decent hollow leg anyway.
I have written numerous articles on accessibility for everyone on my own blog, www.notverywise.com, and for the Irish Times. A quick Google will bring you to them.
Legless In Dublin is not poking fun at anybody. It's trying to help and open up the city to everyone. This can only happen once everyone can get their foot in the door, AMIRITE?
If any restaurants, bars, hotels etc. want me to come and review their establishment, please contact me via email or Twitter.
