Here is a chance to watch the video of The Midlands ISL Learners Choir that was muted by Facebook.

The choir warmed the hearts and won cheers for their performance of This Is Me on stage at the Portlaoise St Patrick's Day parade for 2019.

However Facebook went on to mute the video, and the group had to make a special appeal to have the sound reinstated.

The volunteer group Midlands ISL Learners teaches Irish Sign Language to schools and the wider public to help deaf people to communicate more freely in their communities. 

The members are Hannah Malone, Lexi Nelson, Saoirse Fox, Bridget Reidy Dundon, Leah Murray, Ben Twomey, Kayla O Neill, Riona O Neill, Matthew McGree and Sean Devereux
