Covid confessions – Dublin edition

Peadar O'Cearnaigh

Further coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions were introduced in Ireland on 27 March. They’ll stay in place until at least 5 May. Four young people in Dublin’s north east inner city share their thoughts on this effective lockdown. And one guy – Darragh Flood – responds with humour.

Firstly, they give their opinions on how they feel being cooped up inside and how they feel young people have been portrayed in the mainstream media.  

Finally, Darragh took a serious topic (panic buying and therefore scarcity of toilet roll) and looked at how the community can get involved to support each other.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
