Irish Sign Language
- ISL Interpreted
Irish Sign Language (ISL) is the sign language of Ireland used in the Republic of Ireland by ISL users.
People who use ISL regard themselves as being a linguistic minority. Consequently, ISL users describe themselves as “Deaf” (with a capital D) in the same way as a French or German speaker would. English or Irish is likely to be sign language users’ second language and they may not be fluent in it, and this may have implications for your marketing.
There are around 5,000 users of ISL in the Republic of Ireland, who are mostly people who have been deaf all their lives, or from early childhood.
A sign language interpreter interprets what a person says or signs simultaneously, or immediately afterwards. Sign language makes use of space and involves movement of the hands, body, face and head.
Suitable for live performance, talks, meetings, conferences and online events.
