Vice President of Paralympics Ireland prevented from voting freely (via @thejournal_ie) http://jrnl.ie/2627946

VOTERS WITH DISABILITIES were prevented from freely accessing some count centres during yesterday’s elections.

For some centres it was requested that those with accessibility issues wishing to take part should call ahead to ensure that they were facilitated.

In one case this resulted in the joint-Vice President of Paralympics Ireland Eimear Breathnach being prevented from freely casting her vote.

Breathnach won a number of major titles for table tennis during her career as a paralympic athlete, competing in the Beijing and London Paralympic games.

Upon arriving at her polling station yesterday, she was was initially unable to enter as she had not called ahead to request wheelchair access.
