Welcome to Deaf Village Ireland

A collaborative organisation represented by all deaf organisations in Ireland.


We create an inclusive space for community life celebrating Deaf Culture.

We are an inclusive state of the art social, administration, religious, community, sports, heritage and educational complex providing a range of facilities for both Deaf and hearing people.

We are Deaf led with a unique integrated communication ethos where both Irish Sign Language (ISL) and spoken English are used.

Information on COVID 19

CISLI has been working on building up some training resources for interpreters during this crisis. As part of this, we have put together a webinar for CISLI members on the medical aspects of Covid-19.

We have been asked to make the first part of this webinar available to the Deaf community. The video is hosted on youtube and is free to send to your members via your social media etc.  

The first part is a presentation with a GP, Mary Anne Woulfe. It is hosted by Teresa Lynch (Centre for Deaf Studies) and Veronica White (interpreter), and facilitated by Suzanne Carey.

Please be advised – and please advise your members – that this video is for information purposes only. It is not intended as medical advice. If you feel unwell or have any questions about your health, please contact your GP.

The presentation is approx. one hour long. It is interpreted into ISL by Veronica White, with Tracey Daly Feely working into English. 

The presentation will be available for the next two months.

The link to the presentation is: https://bit.ly/39UeMAi

CISLI would like to thank the CDS for their support with this initiative.
