OFFICIAL OPENING OF DEAF VILLAGE IRELAND (DVI)
We would like to send our best wishes to DVI, as they will be celebrating
their official opening on the 4th of March.
There will be a variety of events planned, with more details to follow over
the coming weeks. Minister Leo Varadkar and Archbishop Dermot Martin (among
others) will officiate the event, which starts at about 10am. A number of
fun events will run throughout the day culminating in a Ceile in the
evening. DVI is aware that being a Monday, it could be a bit tricky for
people in work or school to get away, which is why the evening events might
allow more people to help them celebrate the opening.
More details will be available on their website at www.deafvillageireland.ie
or on their Facebook page- search for Deaf Village Ireland.
