The History of Deaf People in Ireland an talk by Margaret Du Feu at The Linen Hall

A talk by Margaret Du Feu 

One in a thousand people are profoundly deaf from birth or early childhood. In the past, they were called ‘deaf and dumb’, a term that is now unacceptable to the modern deaf community which has British and Irish Sign Languages as its core identity.  Until recently, educational policies advised hearing families not to sign, and oral methods of teaching were enforced at the residential schools in Belfast and Dublin.

Join Margaret Du Feu for a talk about the history of deaf people in Ireland.
