For the last number of weeks and months, everyone in Ireland has taken steps to flatten the curve, to protect our health service and save lives.  These actions have reduced the impact of COVID -19 on the country and our health service.  Now we need to motivate and inspire people to keep going with those actions that help us to stay safe and protect each other.  Staying away from the people we love and the things we enjoy is not easy.  It’s not us.  But, this is us – taking care of each other, supporting our colleagues on the frontline and essential services, and the people most at risk in communities all across the country.  #Staysafe and protect each other #HoldFirm
