Whether you’re affected by sight loss are blind or partially sighted or know someone who is this is your podcast. Your voice, your stories, your lives!
Craic On, produced by RNIB in Northern Ireland, features a rich mix of local voices and local stories of local people affected by sight loss. We have different themes each episode and welcome any and all input and ideas from you our listeners!
With the departure of our lead presenter Joe last month to pastures new, we had a bit of a mutiny on our hands when some young people involved with our Realise project took the helm. In this special episode six young people chat and share about all things sight loss related, including:
Hopes for the future: ‘Google, get on the driverless cars’ - Nathan
Starting secondary school and getting into work: ‘I hope my sight doesn’t hold me back’ - Niamh
Making new friends and explaining your sight:‘playing hide and seek in a crowd can be difficult!’ - Conor
Words of wisdom for anyone recently experiencing sight loss
And much more! Including accidental trips to Newry, playing partially sighted football, and Josh signs us off with a bit of funky folk guitar playing!
Our next episode we’ll be talking travel and holidays. Have you any stories or tips you could share? Know any fantastic countries for accessibility? Ever been on a trip with TravelEyes or a similar company? Get in touch!
