As the lockdown continues across Ireland, communities everywhere are doing their best to keep spirits high. In the parishes of Roundfort, Carras and Robeen in Co Mayo, one man encompasses the meaning of community and is as entertaining as he is comforting.

Fr Michael Murphy, or Fr Mike as he is known locally, has been working day and night, broadcasting mass live for his parishioners. Not only that, but because he is covering three churches, he will still say mass at each church, every day, recognising the importance of keeping everything as normal as possible, especially for older people.
