Sincere thanks to Philip Quinlan from Spinal Injuries Ireland who spoke to our TY and fifth year girls about spinal injuries and his own life-changing injury.
The girls came away with a thorough knowledge of how fortunate they are, how a spinal cord injury could happen to anyone, and how clearly devastating a spinal cord injury is to both the individual and their families. However, as Philip emphasised with understanding, the correct support, and SII (Spinal Injuries Ireland) services, the individual has a greater chance to engage fully in society, take on new challenges and enjoy life. There is a lot yet to be done, 76% of people in Ireland with a spinal cord injury remain unemployed, that’s 27% higher than the European average for unemployment. Rosemont students are now very much aware of the challenges and will endeavour to help SII into the future.
