“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,” she said.

Thermo Fisher Scientific is one of many local companies who have rallied together to make generous donations and gestures in a bid to support frontline workers and to help those vulnerable to the virus.
