The Irish Deaf Society
About the The Irish Deaf Society
The Irish Deaf Society seeks to achieve and promote the Equality and Rights of Deaf people in Ireland.
On the grounds of the Irish Constitution and Human Rights and international legislation, the ambition of full access to citizenship and society is sought through the empowerment and mobilisation of the Deaf community. With an awareness of their identity and their rights as individuals, Deaf people in Ireland are enabled to celebrate their culture and continue to ensure the upholding of Irish Sign Language recognition and break down the barriers of discrimination.
