After a whirlwind tour of Ireland that began in Dublin a year ago and which has already taken in counties Monaghan, Mayo, Kildare and Limerick, a star-studded photography exhibition based on Irish Sign Language (ISL) is to make a welcome return to Dublin’s Temple Bar.

“Signs of life” is organised by the Irish Deaf society and features photos of 26 Irish celebrities, including footballer Robbie Keane, novelist Roddy Doyle, cook Rachel Allen, TV presenter Eamonn Holmes, musician Andrea Corr and TV3 presenter Sinead Desmond.

These photos, snapped by Deaf photographer Johnny Corcoran, provide a glimpse of the beauty of ISL through the eyes of the celebrities, who each sign a letter of the ISL alphabet.
