This unique book offers a fascinating insight into the lives of a variety of people in Ireland living with different kinds of disabilities. A few are well-known for their high-profile achievements, but most are private citizens struggling to live their lives as fully as possible in a society which, in many cases, is `disabled in its approach to people with disabilities. Includes an 11-track CD featuring Phil Coulter, Brendan Monaghan and others.
