It can be hard to lift the spirits up these days but one group that’s working hard to keep the cogs turning is An Garda Síochana. All across the country, local community Gardaí are doing their bit to keep in touch with everyone on the ground while encouraging social distancing to ensure that we’re on the right track forward.

I am so proud of Ireland right now. To be honest, I had a bit of a cry at some of these gestures. I thought I had dried up after the wee lad’s birthday visit, but then the garda out walking the dog… Feeling a bit overwhelmed.
Ah Mary, thank you so much for your lovely message. Indeed, right now it can be fiercely emotional and difficult to get through these days. Fingers crossed we will all get through it safe and sound. Keep safe and well!
