Further concerts will take place during the health emergency to boost the residents spirits and honour the health professionals at the care home doing everything possible to keep the elderly safe during the pandemic.

Visits to the Cobh Hospital were limited last month to help stop the spread of the covid 19 virus, leaving residents isolated. The move was made as health experts warned that older people are more likely to have critical symptoms or die from the illness.
