A new wheelchair accessible boat is to be launched on Lough Ramor later this month.

Late last year, Ramor Watersports Club in Virginia unveiled fundraiser plans to purchase a "Wheelyboat" for members.

The idea came about after some club members with additional mobility needs highlighted the difficulty they had getting on and off boats.
