Cork’s response to Covid-19 is the topic of an online discussion that will be hosted by Sinn Féin representatives in Cork at 7pm this evening.
Cork City GP Dr Nick Flynn and Siobhan O'Dowd from Ballyphehane-Togher Community Development Project will join the party’s TDs from Cork - Thomas Gould, Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire and Pat Buckley.
Sinn Féin Health Spokesperson Louise O'Reilly TD will also take part in the discussion.
"The people of Cork are demonstrating impressive determination in rising to the challenge posed to our communities by Covid-19," Deputy Ó Laoghaire said.
"This Facebook meeting will be focused on discussing the issues that matter to people in Cork at this stage of the emergency and we will have a discussion centred on the response from the health service and the community sector."
"We are delighted to be joined by Dr Nick Flynn and Siobhan O'Dowd who will bring a range of valuable insights and information for viewers.
"It is extremely important that we stay connected during this crisis. We hope that this Facebook meeting will provide people with a sense of the huge amount of work that is being done locally to keep us safe.
"We will also discuss the areas of the response that need to be improved and what needs to happen before any restrictions are lifted.”
