Dr. John Cullinan of Economics at NUI Galway recently delivered a paper at an Inclusion Ireland conference on the economic cost of disability.  His research shows that the economic cost of disability in Ireland is large and has a significantly negative impact on the living standards of the disabled and their families.  It suggests that current policy in Ireland does not go far enough in addressing the impact of these extra costs and that it is time to think again about the introduction of a cost of disability payment for those most adversely impacted by such costs.
