Just realized that I might have the location of the hand wrong - the first
hand (at least the palm) is meant to be facing the chest but a bit leant

Perhaps you should put in 'help' beside the signmaker - you click on the
symbol and the photo of someone's hand appears etc - it would help us a lot
- especially the ones who rely on visual learning (just like me) - I know
there are sign writing lessons - but not everyone would be patient (like
me!) or it confuse some people (like me again!)

My work, the Sign Language Centre Belfast, is putting together the
application to get funding to pay for Kristof de Weerdt (a very cool
Belgian) and some people (Sara and maybe Kathleen!) to fly over and teach us
(me included!) how to write NISL and ISL! :D

Hello Everyone and Shane -
Thank you for writing the sign for Northern Ireland in NISL - Northern
Ireland Sign Language...or is it in ISL...Irish Sign Language? Anyway,
here it is. I have some questions...Is the first left hand facing your
chest, or do you mean it to be facing the ceiling? You wrote it facing
the chest...
