Video Content

Inclusion Ireland self-advocacy group has produced a video on the theme of inclusion to mark the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Self-advocates Adrian Noonan, Dermot Lowndes, Phil Davy and Martin Rowan spent a day in Dublin visiting the Aviva Stadium, listening to Trad music in the pub and talking about the recent Equality Referendum.

Our narrator in the video, Adrian, talks about how it’s important that persons with intellectual disabilities make their own decisions in their everyday lives.

Adrian has a chat with Martin who is a qualified FAI referee with the Dublin District Schoolboys League and Dermot who is socialising with his friends in the pub.

We also hear from the group about their thoughts on relationships.

The group explains that there is a fear factor around family and staff supporting persons with a disability to have a relationship.

We can also see Keith Whelan, who is from St John of Gods Liffey Region and who kindly agreed to take part in our video, as he gets a tattoo of his favourite band The Who from Colour Works Tattoo on the Dublin quays.

A big thanks to Sarah Gavra Boland for helping with filming and editing the video.
