IWA Dunraven Centre 007
One of IrelandÕs greatest champions and noted philanthropist Loretta Brennan Glucksman officially opened a state of the art Resource and Outreach Centre on behalf of Irish Wheelchair Association in Limerick.
The new centre is being named after Lord Dunraven who sadly passed away in 2011. The first President of Irish Wheelchair Association, a position he held from 1971 until 1991, Lord Dunraven was a passionate believer in the importance of raising awareness of disability. Having had a disability himself, Lord Dunraven was acutely aware of the attitudes and barriers to independent living faced by people with disabilities and he was a vocal advocate for the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of Irish life. The Dunraven Centre will continue his legacy and provide a range of vital services, supports, educational and employment opportunities to people with disabilities living throughout Limerick.
Attending the launch of the Dunraven Centre were, Jimmy Byrne, philanthropist Loretta Brennan Glucksman, CEO of Irish Wheelchair Association, Kathleen McLoughlin and Majella Fagan, Manager Dunraven Centre. Picture: Alan Place/FusionShooters.
