CISLI’s Training Sub-Committee asked Cormac Leonard to present on his PhD research in a talk entitled “Interpreters and Deaf People in Irish Courts, 1816 – 1924” last night. Following this presentation, our General Meeting was held, where several points were discussed and agreed. In particular there was a need identified for interpreters to discuss and understand the contents and implications of the ISL Bill. Much momentum and enthusiasm was generated, and we even got some new volunteers for our Sub-Committees!
Thanks to all who attended. Thanks also to the Centre for Deaf Studies for use of the room, and to Lisa Harvey for photos.
