Autism Friendly

Clonakilty was the first town in Ireland to be Autism Friendly. The West Cork Model Railway Village is an Autism Friendly Champion. Staff received training in order to become an Autism Friendly Champion. We have a Relaxation Box located at the Ticket Office for visitors to use. The Model Village is service dog-friendly.

Clonakilty Sensory Garden is located within the carpark of the Model Village. It was developed by Clonakilty Tidy Towns & Area Sports Group Community Employment Scheme. SuperValu Clonakilty sponsored the initiative. The Sensory Garden was developed to create an environment for children living with autism to play in a safe, secure and calming space. The garden features elements that appeal to all five senses using a range of materials and plants.

Website Accessibility

The West Cork Model Railway Village is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to parts  of the available standards and guidelines.

The following are some of the things that we have implemented to support accessibility:

  • Fully responsive website
  • Content is accessed through a keyboard in an accessible way
  • Naming of images
  • Heading styles are used correctly to organise the structure of the content
  • Implemented a content management system that supports accessibility
  • Using colour with care
  • Forms designed for accessibility

The following are some shortfalls we will work on to improve:

  • Some images may be missing alt attributes
  • The website is not yet fully conformant to WCAG 2.1
