The new facility will be based at the Civic centre in Athlone.

It's hoped a special changing facility for children and adults with disabilities and mobility issues in Athlone will be open by the first half of next year.

Funding has been put in place by Westmeath County Council and the government for the facility which will be based at the Athlone Civic Centre.
