Hands On

hands On! 22 Dec 2013

With Christmas time creeping ever closer, decorations are going up across the country. There's surely a bit of money to be made in that! Sarah Jane Moloney challenges two viewers to turn their love of arts and crafts into a Christmas business for a day as they compete at the Designer Mart in Cow's Lane to see who can sell the most of their crafts. All in the hope of winning a voucher from Inspiring Ideas worth €250!
Meanwhile, Elaine Grehan visits St. Joseph's House for Deaf and Deafblind, the only dedicated care home for Deaf and Deafblind people, and asks if it will have to close its doors.
And Eddie Redmond hosts the first Take 5 Debate, as Colm Finnegan and Joanne Chester argue over whether Disability Allowance is a help or a hindrance to the Deaf community.
