We finished the mini-marathon on Sunday Sept 15th. We went to the Market Bar to re-hydrate with other participants from various charities including MS Ireland. The wheelchair toilet is accessible, the pints good and the atmosphere great. We headed for home where Henry proceeded to pump my wheels for the fast approaching sojourn to Spain. We had only left the house on our way to the hotel when we heard a peculiar short sharp hiss from the boot. Yes you’ve guessed it one of the wheels had punctured.
What to do now? 5 O’Clock on Sunday evening and heading to Spain for 10 days. The Edge in the Kinsale Road Commercial centre came to the rescue. They couldn’t repair it but fitted a new tube and supplied another in case we had another incident on holiday. Eternally grateful to the Edge we then continued with our journey to The Cork International Airport Hotel. If you remember a previous post I was not particularly complimentary of the disabled parking facilities.
As promised a directional sign has gone up near the front door and there are plenty designated parking spaces with easy access at the rear of the hotel. We stayed that night and the room was spacious and the en-suite in the room was totally accessible. The bar and restaurant on the ground floor was easy to navigate and the wheelchair toilet near reception was perfect.
