This week's goal is to encourage social enterprises to show their services and products for sale, highlight their work and offer potential buyers the opportunity to interact and meet, while raising awareness among companies about the corporate social responsibility opportunities offered by working with social enterprises. Local businesses and purchasing professionals are expected to attend the event, and it will serve as a catalyst to raise the profile of social enterprises and ensure a wider audience for their products and services. It promises to be an exciting opportunity for shared learning and the identification of new opportunities. Ireland's deaf community has said that many members of their community were disappointed during the final hurling across Ireland on August 19, after RTÉ television cameras only showed a few seconds of the ISL's interpretation of the national anthem.
There were Irish sign language interpreters both at the recent final of hurling from all over Ireland in Croke Park to perform the national anthem and at the events held during the Pope's visit to Ireland. Ireland's deaf community has complained to RTÉ for not broadcasting Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpreters on television during two important recent events.
