Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town

We were delighted to be invited to take part in the Enterprise Ireland Event hosted by the Bank of Ireland at the Secondary School in Kilrush on the 21st of September last.

It was wonderful to see over 80 local businesses taking part in the event and showcasing their businesses.  The message on the night was that we should appreciate the great businesses that are on our doorstep and encourage the people of West Clare to try and shop local when possible.

It was great to see so many people at the event and our receptionist Noreen got to capture her good friend Marty for a picture!

Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015

Following the signing into law of the Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015, Solicitors Gearoid Williams and Aisling Glynn completed a Law Society Certificate in Decision Making Capacity & Support.   The Act reforms Ireland’s capacity legislation which has been in place since the 19th century. It establishes a modern statutory framework to support decision-making by adults who may have difficulty in making decisions.  This recent Irish Times article provides a helpful update on this evolving area of practice.

Congratulations Luke!

McMahon & Williams Solicitors would like to congratulate Luke and his assistance dog Ike on their graduation from secondary school and for winning the Spirit Award.    Luke, who has cerebral palsy, has overcome many difficulties in his education.  His primary school refused him entry to school with his assistance dog and Luke missed out on most of his final year of primary school education.   Unfortunately, Luke and his family had to take legal action against the school.  McMahon & Williams Solicitors acted on behalf of Luke and his family in this disability discrimination case which was the first in Ireland that involved a child with an assistance dog in the school context.   Thankfully the successful outcome allowed Luke to continue his secondary education with his stability dog.  Luke’s stability dog is a highly trained mobility dog, to help him walk.   McMahon & Williams Solicitors were delighted to be part of Luke’s story and we hope the successful outcome will pave the way for other students with disabilities.  Read the full case here:
