Love going to clubs and festivals? Enjoy listening to music through your earphones everyday? You may be one of the many young people now suffering from hearing loss..

Hearing loss is an affliction that we most commonly associate with older poeple but did you know that 1 in 6 Irish adults are affected by hearing loss and on average wait 10 years to take action.

More and more young people are presenting with hearing loss due to exposure to loud noises in particular - loud music, gigs and festivals, loud working environments and busy traffic..
