Deaf Brothers' Deaths Raise Isolation Concerns

Deaf News: Deaf rights campaigners plead for recognition to prevent more tragedies like death of Daniel and William McCarthy.

DUBLIN -- Irish Examiner: The Irish Deaf Society said that, if given official status, Irish Sign Language would have to be used in State services and Deaf people would be less at risk of isolation.
