SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER ACCESS AT CORK GAOL
Cork Deaf Club (CDC) have arranged for an Interpreter to join them on
Saturday 28th March 2015 on a visit to the historic Cork Gaol. Admission is
7euro and paid to CDC. They will meet outside the gaol at 11.30 am.
This will be a fascinating tour if you are interested in Irish history?
Have you ever wanted to see where prisoners were housed in 19th century
Ireland? Visitors to the gaol get a fascinating insight into day-to-day
prison life at a time when the high walls ensured no escaped. Law abiding
citizens were also denied the opportunity to see one of the finest examples
of Ireland’s architectural heritage.
The cells are furnished with amazingly life like wax figures; original
graffiti on cell walls tell the innermost feelings of some inmates. An
audio-visual tells the social history and contrasting lifestyles of the 19th
century Cork. It also shows why some people turned to crime, while others
ended up in Australia.
For more information about the gaol and its location go to:
