Downsyndrome Ireland Mural

A mural celebrating people with Down syndrome has been unveiled in Dublin city centre.

A 60ft piece of artwork by renowned street artist Joe Caslin has been erected on a building on the corner of Harcourt Street and Clonmel Street in Dublin’s City Centre. The image entitled, Don’t Talk Down to Me, features Amanda Butler marking Down Syndrome Ireland’s 50th birthday.

A special report, The Upside – Life with Down syndrome has been released as part of the campaign, where it outlines ‘21 Demands’ for this Government to bring about real change in achieving disability rights in this country.

‘The Upside’ campaign focuses on four key aspects of life for a person with Down syndrome: health, education, employment and life in the community.

The report, ‘The Upside – Life with Down syndrome‘, outlines the gaps between public attitudes and societal aspirations towards inclusion and the harsh realities of life for people with Down syndrome and their families.
