Ireland's Deaf Community - A History

The Deaf community are rarely mentioned in general histories of Ireland. Prior to making this episode I knew almost nothing about their rich history. In this podcast I interview the historian Cormac Leonard from Trinity College Dublin. Cormac reveals the fascinating history of the Deaf Community in Ireland.

He provides vivid accounts of deaf people struggling against authorities in workhouses and prisons, to those who fought in IRA in the War of Independence.

This episode will challenge preconceptions many of us have about the role deaf people have played in our history.
