If you ask Graham Merrigan how long he’s been in a wheelchair, he might respond ‘since 8 am this morning’. It’s one of the hundreds of things he has to put up with as a wheelchair user in Ireland which accessibility is rarely the top of any politicians agenda. He joins Rachel from his house to chat the disability rights, the League of Ireland and how he founded his own wheelchair basketball team.
