Lovely comment Ellen... thank you and I agree... little bureaucrats don't have nearly the power they like to think they have.... just as well too as they can't be trusted to do the right thing as they have displayed... not only in this case... but time and time again!

People with disabilities should not be refused access on any form of transport public or otherwise, as they are human beings that have the same rights to be treated with courtesy, dignity and respect as you or I. Just because someone many looks different to you or anyone else does not give anybody the right to discriminate, and bearing in mind they are a paying customer too, are entitled to a high standard of service, and a safe journey without incident.

I have met a number of people over the years with Downs Syndrome, and I would never treat them with nothing less than 100%, courtesy, dignity, respect, and good manners!, as I would like to be treated myself.

I have a sister and a son with Down syndrome, both travel internationally between Africa, Europe and the USA freely, without discrimination and are most often the best behaved, most enjoyable passengers on the flight. If my Sister and Son could not travel, my family would be divided too, family holidays, reunions, weddings, and events would be entirely incomplete. They are essential members of our family and have to be with us just as my parents and my brother and my uncles and cousins do....

They are essential members of our family and have to be with us just as my parents and my brother and my uncles and cousins do. No-one external to the family has the right to decide they cannot travel or be with their family, that is abusive. If the family takes responsibility for their expenses and care along the way...who in the world is to complain or restrain. My son is extremely independent as are many people with down syndrome. Travel and family time enables and enriches everyone's lives, we should promote it.

It still blows my mind how the world is these days. Its 2013 for crying out loud. We are all Gods children and discrimination between us is uncalled for. I wish the world could grow up and stop acting like a group of mis-behaved 5 year olds

I agree I have Austim and Im very indepedant yet I traveled to the UK and was allowed in so denying her that right is immoral and downright wrong.

If, this is true, she needs to get it out in the news in Ireland. She needs to seek a lawyer who deals with discrimination and also the disabilities commission. She can ask for one who will do it pro bono. Get in on the news in Ireland.

Maybe I am missing something apart from the injustice which I agree is pants, but if this person resides in Northern Ireland then can't they apply for a British passport. They would be making application to a different authority?

I wrote to John Nugent Pauline and told him this is downright discrimination. I have a son with autism and I cannot tolerate this type of behavior! We are all equal and should all have the same equal rights! I really hope you get back what is rightly yours and have a lovely new life in sunny Florida.
I will be thinking of you Pauline, from Fiona O Leary in west cork xxx.
