New Ross councillor at Oireachtas debate on Autism


On World Autism Awareness Day, a motion was brought forward in Dáil Eireann to debate the requirement for the provision of support services for those living with Autism, their parents, advocates and families.
The motion was tabled by Sinn Féin and Carlow Deputy Kathleen Funchion. Sinn Féin deputies and some from other parties debated this motion and there was eventually cross-party agreement to set up an all-party committee to be tasked with finally delivering an autism empowerment strategy.
New Ross Sinn Féin Cllr Marie Doyle was in attendance and said; Parents of those with Autism must continuously battle with the system for their children’s rights to access services and education. Thankfully Sinn Féin’s motion aimed at empowering people with Autism and their families received cross-party support in the Dáil.”
Cllr Doyle was disappointed at the lack of Wexford TDs in attendance, commenting that “Parents are fighting on a daily basis to get their children the services they need in Co. Wexford.”
Should any parents in the New Ross District want to voice their concerns in dealing with the lack of services or any other issues in relation to Autism they can contact Cllr Marie Doyle.
