COVID-19 has gripped the nation. We have been ordered into lockdown by our Government and the Gardaí have been given special powers of arrest for those in breach of this new legislation.  People are worried about their families, friends, neighbours and especially about the vulnerable in our society; the elderly, cancer patients, people with compromised immunity and others at high risk of contracting COVID-19. People have died as a direct result of this deadly virus and many others are very ill in hospitals, nursing homes and isolated at home.

Many businesses have folded, hotels, restaurants and bars are closed, all sporting activities have been postponed or cancelled and the country has almost grinded to a halt. Shops selling non-essential produce are closed and more worrying yet is the closure of dental practices across the country in a bid to reduce the spread of the virus.
