Join the blue kangaroo and friends at the Old Library to learn about the very very very long room.

We are delighted announce the launch of the Irish Sign Language translation of two beautifully animated stories relating to the Book of Kells. This is a collaboration between The Centre for Deaf Studies and the Book of Kells. Professor Lorraine Leeson, Haaris Sheikh and Senan Dunne (Deaf Interpreter) have worked together to present a beautiful translation of two short Book of Kells animations into Irish Sign Language. Funded by @HeritageHubIRE and supported by IGI Media and Trinity’s Centre for Deaf Studies’ @studies_centre delightful children’s animation is designed for deaf audiences.

The second animation is “The Very Long Room” which takes you on an animated journey through the world-famous iconic – The Long Room Trinity College Library. Here you will meet a kangaroo, a crocodile and other friends. Make sure you concentrate otherwise you might miss the whale!!!!!
