Irish Sign Language

Learning Irish Sign Language in a social setting through workshops, events and outings.

Irish Sign Language Society is a new society, aiming to provide access to all our students (and staff) to learn Irish Sign Language, the cultural aspects of the Deaf community and facilitating social sign workshops for all.  As NUI Galway is a diverse and inclusive university, a member of the University of Sanctuary our desire is to open student life, community life and education to Deaf students. This will be a safe space where diverse, inclusive practices are held sacred. 


Types of social sign language include (but are not limited to) dining out, sign language in sport, going to the club/pub, attending workshops, travel in all its forms, to name a few.  In addition, there are several websites where you are able to pick up basic sign language e.g. www.learnirishsignlanuage.ie
