3Arena vs Croke Parke

Whilst both venus are accessible with adequate disabled facilities and seating spots for those with disabilities I would have to favour the 3Arena for a number of reasons.

Firstly the underground parking with close proximity wheelchair access that makes transferring in wet weather less challenging.

Secondly the elevator facilities throughout the building make for ease of movement  between floors.

The wheelchair seating in the 3Arena is far less invasive than in Croke Parke. In Crogh Parke all wheelchair users are bunched together on a stand at the complete back of the Parke whilst in the 3Arena the wheelchair seating is far less segregating and intrusive dispersed among the regular seating with freedom to go to toilets\bar as you please.

The view is far better and less restricted from the seating facilities provided for wheelchair user inthe 3Arena compared to other.


I am a C6 spinal cord injured lady three years post injury and I am living alone, working and doing day to day tasks with minimal assistance. This site is to offer friendly advice and support to newly injured spinal cord people and their families. From issues of exercise, transferring, personal grooming, clothes etc and showing ways of relearning day to day tasks we took for granted in the past. I will also provide links to products and services that I have found useful to my progress. Spinal cord injuries are so unique to each individual so remember what works for one person may not work for someone else but feel free to comment if you know about something that may have helped you in regaining some of your independence.
