Brendan O’Connor spoke passionately last night on the Late Late Show about the lack of services there are for the likes of his daughter Mary who has down syndrome.

O’Connor went into detail as to how difficult it is to obtain basic state rights for people with disabilities.

Visibly angry and irate over the horrendous figures of over 15,000 people with disabilities waiting for basic speech therapy.

He finished by saying:
“Give them their voices, let them speak”
