Background & History

Robert Morgan, the person behind Disability.ie has a disability. Over the years, he has experienced difficulties in accessing information relevant to his needs. It was this first-hand experience that led to the decision to establish a website to contain all these details-and more-under one memorable address. His vision was for a site that would provide information on many disability-related themes.

Work commenced on researching information for the site, which is an ongoing activity. Market needs, available information and the format such information was available in were all areas that were carefully scrutinised. The demonstrable need for such a website, along with the positive feedback received from various people, organisations and groups approached about the idea, convinced Robert to start putting his idea into practice.

The first step was to register the company and establish it as a legal entity. Following this, the domain name needed to be purchased. The unanimous choice was disability.ie, the simple, universal key word that is the initial search word and starting point for anybody requiring information in this area.

With this organised, it was time to launch disability.ie.

After its first year we are delighted to announce that our site won the 2003 Community Section Golden Spider Awards! - The Irish Internet Of The Year Awards.
