SUPPORTER OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNERS

ISL VLOGS
KDRC recognises and appreciates the outstanding development & contribution
of ‘ISL Vlogs’ to the Deaf Community in Ireland.

ISL Vlogs is an online video platform where Deaf people can uploads videos
in sign language on a wide range of issues of importance to Deaf individuals
& the wider Deaf community.

This award acknowledges those who set up ISL Vlogs, the Facebook page
administrators & mediators and all the individuals who submit videos to ISL
Vlogs. It is a fantastic resource for all of us with an interest in Deaf
issues, Irish Sign Language (ISL), the Deaf Community & Deaf Culture.

Thank you. It is great appreciated by us all.

MARY JO WALSH
KDRC recognises and appreciates the commitment & involvement of adult CODA’s
(Children of Deaf Adults) in the lives of their Deaf parents. This is
especially important, as their parent becomes elderly and at times less
independent.

We recognise the support given to your mother Cecilia, ensuring her
communication needs were met & for creating Deaf awareness amongst
professionals your mother came into contact with on a daily basis.

Thank you. It is much appreciated.

DAVID LYNE
KDRC recognised and appreciated the creative talents of David Lyne in the
array
of crafts he produced showcasing Irish Sign Language.

In particular, we appreciated the hand carved products he created for KDRC
and our staff. Many of these were designed with the “I Love You” handshape
in sign language, which is an important part of Deaf Culture in Ireland &
internationally.

We present this award to his CODA/KODA children (Children/Kids of Deaf
Adults) in memory of David’s many Deaf artistic talents.
