Louise speaks to us about her experiences as a wheelchair user and her career as a music journalist and blogger.
Louise Bruton is a Dublin-based freelance journalist. Her work has appeared in The Irish Times, the Sunday Business Post, entertainment.ie, The Huffington Post and the Irish Independent. Primarily, Louise is a pop fan, avid tweeter and a music journalist but when she’s not writing about music and festivals, she is writing about access and life in a wheelchair on her blog Legless In Dublin.
Since Legless started in 2013, Louise has appeared on Today FM, Spin 103.8, RTE Radio 1, 2FM and TV3’s Ireland AM to discuss disability and access in a straight-forward and honest way with the smallest dash of humour. She recently took part in TEDMED’s event in San Francisco and is delighted, as a DCU graduate, to take part in TEDxDCU.
You can find her musings on access and being at crotch level with everyone on LeglessInDublin.blogspot.com.
