Hidden Hearing Awards (September-2013)

We are so proud of 2 members of the staff of St. Mary's who won awards at the 2013 Hidden Hearing Awards ceremony last week.

Our former Deputy-Principal, Maura Buckley, the first Deaf woman to become a qualified teacher, and a pioneer in the Irish Deaf Community, was presented with the Lifetime Achievement award by singer Daniel O'Donnell.

And Maggie Owens, Maths teacher on our staff, was presented the Social Contribution Award, along with past-pupil Tracey Treanor and photographer Johnny Corcoran, for their part in Signs of Life. This IDS sponsored exhibition featured some of the biggest names in Irish music, media, arts, sport and entertainment using Irish Sign Language (ISL).
