50 years of pioneering work for disability rights by Martin Naughton, director of Áiseanna Tacaíochta (ÁT), was highlighted in a feature piece in the Irish Times over the weekend.

Journalist Mark Hilliard spoke to Martin about everything from leading early campaigns for change in care support to helping to found the Centre of Independent Living in the early 1990s, right up to his work with ÁT and promotion of human rights for people with disabilities today.

Looking to the future, Martin closed by saying, “I think what you will see more and more over the next decade will be people with disabilities being the face of their community. I am very excited about that.”
