A History of Ireland's Deaf Community [From the archives]

I have come down with a cold so rather than subject you to me coughing and spluttering through a show I have selected a classic from the archives. 

As I explain, I recently listened back to this episode after a chance meeting with my guest Cormac Leonard. The episode on the history of the Deaf community is the definition of forgotten history. Until recently the community was largely ignored by historians. 

In this episode Cormac explains how the deaf community shaped Irish history. He also shares individual stories such as John Neville who spent most of his life in a workhouse and the IRA volunteer William Leavey.
