From this training course, Mary received opportunities to provide ways of spreading the 'Good News' to the Deaf Community. She studied a diploma in Irish Deaf Language Teaching at the Centre for Deaf Studies, Trinity College for two years.

Mary now lives in Kerry where she cares for her elderly father and brother, and she also teaches Irish Sign Language.
