Google has said ‘thank you’ to all the people who are tirelessly working in Ireland amid the coronavirus outbreak. In their recently released video, the technology giant paid tribute to those sacrificing so much to help so many.

We were particularly thrilled and overjoyed to see a photo from Cramers Court, one of our nursing homes based in Belgooly, Kinsale, was featured in the video. 45 seconds into this touching video, Garda Peter Moran can be seen greeting Cramers Court Nursing Home resident Betty Gaffney. This snap was taken during a special delivery of personal protective equipment and Easter Eggs from Thermo Fisher Scientific, located in Currabinny, Carrigaline, with the assistance of the Community Gardaí.

At the time, activities coordinator at Cramers Court Nursing Home Teresa O’Donovan said: “We are delighted with this incredibly kind gesture. Thermo Fisher Scientific rallying behind Cramers Court by providing essential PPE and Easter Eggs was a tremendous show of community spirit and we thank them for it. Having this special delivery escorted by the Community Gardaí meant there was great excitement across the home, and we felt it was thoroughly deserving of a guard of honour by staff.”

A great tribute to all frontline healthcare workers, which includes our very own staff who are doing incredible work in keeping our residents well and safe.
