Sign of the times

Last Christmas, I posted a video of the choir of St. Mary’s School for Deaf Girls (Dublin) performing Fix You by Coldplay. So many people enjoyed their lovely, eloquent interpretation. (Watch it again here.) This year, by request, I’m posting another video of my favourite choir. Here the girls are joined by friends from St. Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys, as well as hearing peers from two neighbouring schools. The result is a loose, joyful version of Fairytale of New York. Enjoy, and a happy Christmas to all!

  1. Merry Christmas to you too, Aileen. Delighted to have met you in 2015.

    1. Same here, Jean! Enjoy the holidays 🙂

  2. Well Aileen I couldn’t give two hoots about Christmas, but you’d need a heart of stone not to be moved by those two vids. Happy Christmas to you and your family.

    1. Thanks Roy. Glad you enjoyed the videos. I’m always moved by deaf choirs – not sure why. Happy Christmas to you, too. See you around the blogosphere in the New Year!

  3. Hi Aileen – just saw a FutureLearn course on Catalan Sign Language, and thought you might find it interesting. It needs no knowledge of Catalan to join it, but it looks interesting. I hadn’t thought about travelling as a sign language user before. Anyway, here’s the course: http://bit.ly/1ZBKJH0
