A research visit...

Very excited to be travelling to Cork and Belfast in the next week for some exploratory research (and a presentation). I am going to be checking out admission registers and casebooks of Cork Lunatic Asylum and Gransha Asylum, Derry, and looking for Deaf people who were admitted. It's just a preliminary peek at the records but I anticipate that it will be quite a thrilling and emotional experience.
