More about ISL Awareness week:
Unfortunately, in Ireland, Irish Sign Language is not recognised as an official language and therefore has no language rights. Along with increasing awareness and celebrating the existence of Deaf people, ISL Awareness Week will also highlight the difficulties faced by members of the Deaf community and sign language users in Ireland.0
