Over one in five Irish people with a disability are currently in paid employment.

A new survey carried out by the Dublin-based EU agency EuroFound, shows that the number of employees with disabilities continues to grow.

Recent CSO figures revealed that over 643,000 people - or 13.5 per cent of Ireland’s population - are registered as being disabled.

Grace Bolton of the European Commission office in Ireland says the number of disabled people in employment is improving but they continue to face obstacles.
