Lámh Sign Language





*** COVID-19 Update ***
In light of the Government’s decision to close the country’s educational sites in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and to ensure the welfare of our course participants, tutors, their families and the wider community, we have made the decision to postpone our Lámh course on 21March in Swords and the Module 1 Add-on on 07April.
We will be rescheduling these courses when we get the all-clear to return to teaching and learning. Those booked on the courses have been sent an email.
