Croi na Gaillimhe lunch and social club were delighted to welcome as guest
speakers Edel Killarney and Teresa Foy from Deafhear. Edel outlined the many
valuable services available to hard of hearing persons and their families, including information on all aspects of deafness, specialist services and advocates to improve general health.
She also brought with her a number of assisted devices that support people with hearing loss.
Deafhear Advocate Teresa Foy told of her personal journey through hearing loss,
the many difficulties that she had to overcome to regain the quality of life that had been
taken from her were indeed harrowing. It was however, an uplifting story of triumph
over adversity; we were very privileged and grateful to hear it.
