Hands On: RewindThis week Alvean catches up with some young people who, back in 1996 when they were pupils in St Joseph’s and St Mary’s, told us what they wanted to be when they grew up. We bring them back into studio to see if they’ve followed their dreams of 14 years ago! You wouldn’t want to miss their reactions! And if you were at St Joseph’s or St Marys in 1996 – you might just see yourself too!
ISL ChallengeThroughout this series we’ve been following Sinead Desmond, Margaret Farrell and Peadar Owens, three people nominated by their Deaf loved ones to learn Irish Sign Language. Their challenge was to transform themselves from novices to basic Irish Sign Language users. As the series draws to a close so does their 12 weeks of classes at the IDS. We meet them for the final time to see if they’re happy with their achievements so far, if it has made a difference to their loved ones and last but not least we ask them if they’ll keep it up!
