Carlow man says he had no choice but to give up farming because of his dyslexia

Ned Deering from Rathvilly recently appeared before the European Parliament’s petitions committee

A Carlow man says he was forced to give up farming because of his dyslexia.

Ned Deering from Rathvilly recently appeared before the European Parliament’s petitions committee in Brussels to highlight the lack of supports available for adults with dyslexia in Ireland.

This week Carlow County Council voted to support Ned in his bid to get the Department of Agriculture to put services in place.

He says even being able to get the various new legislation and requirements for farmers on a CD that could be listened to would be enough.

Speaking to KCLR News Ned says the committee in Brussels agreed that something needed to be done.
