Kerry Deaf Resource Centre Update 25.06.12

Tralee Omniplex Cinema is showing a subtitled movie on the 27th of June at

The movie is Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter in 3D. The cinema is based
in Dan Spring Road in Tralee. We are delighted and thrilled to see access
grow and grow for movie goers across Ireland and its fantastic to see Tralee
Omniplex also providing subtitle access.

Spread the word to any Deaf person or hard of hearing you may know about
this movie. It would also benefit people with limited English- the subtitles
would help them to following the English spoken word too. For more

We want to remind those who have registered for the Youth Camp which will be
held in Tralee in July. It will be held from the 23rd – 27th of July. This
is being organised in conjunction with Cork Deaf Association. This follows
on from a very successful camp in Kenmare last summer.

The camp will include a 5 full day programme with a range of activities e.g.
team challenges, swimming, bowling, visit to Tralee Wetlands, hill walking,
sightseeing in Killarney and rock climbing & high rope climbing in Dingle.
Look forward to catching up with everyone and participating in all the
events. Our sincere thanks to everyone involved in planning the camp and to
all in CDA too.
