Concerns raised on UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities

Disability campaigners say Ireland's ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities won't be enough by itself.

The Dáil unanimously backed the ratification last night, making us the last EU country to do so.

The convention contains commitments to take action to improve the lives of people with disabilities in all areas.

Senator John Dolan, Chief Executive of the Disability Federation of Ireland, says ratification is just the beginning.
