Mother Saddened By Mean-Spirited Note After Taking Her Disabled Son To Therapy

Siobhan Quigley's son, Robert, has cerebral palsy and cystic fibrosis. She recently traveled to Dublin from Mayo so that she could take him to an occupational therapy session.

Siobhan said of her son “Tous day to day, he is a three-year-old with a monkey that you have to keep your eye on. He is full of devilment and fun.” She and her husband then took Robert to a cafe that they are regulars in due to its accessibility. When they returned, they found a note underneath one of their car's windshield wipers.

The shocking note read, "Having a child does not entitle you to use a disabled parking bay. Consider those less able. I have photographed the disabled badge and reporting your fraudulent use of same to garda."

Appalled, Siobhan said, “Robert has been medically assessed for a disability badge and has received a disability badge. So we use the spaces when he is in the car with us. Mainly to take him in and out of the car.” She went on to say “If they had had the gumption to come up to us and say, ‘actually, what are you doing?’, you know I would have been happy to have a conversation with them and explain the situation. We don’t hide Robert’s disability."
