Alvean addresses marriage equality

This Summer, the Irish Deaf Sports Association sent a record 41 Irish Deaf athletes to the 21st Deaflympics in Taipei! Hands On's cameras were there to catch some of the highlights and all of the drama!

Sarah Jane is up to her old tricks again, hanging out with celebrities! She nabs Clelia Murphy, who plays Niamh on Fair City, RTÉ legend, Marty Whelan and former Big Brother star turned TV and radio personality, Ray Shah to teach them some Irish Sign Language in our Celebrity Sign Off! competition. Sounds simple? Just wait and see how they get on!

Finally Alvean has an informative report on Marriage Equality. She explains the Civil Partnership Bill currently awaiting debate in the Dáil and why Ireland's gay community aren't all happy about it.
Don't miss it!!
