Former Lord Mayor of Cork, Tim Falvey has received his Covid-19 vaccination from another former Lord Mayor.

Tim Falvey received his vaccination from Blackpool GP, Dr John Sheehan, who was Lord Mayor of Cork when the Covid-19 pandemic first hit.

Mr Falvey served as Lord Mayor of Cork in 1994.

In a Facebook post, Dr Sheehan said that it was "an honour" to give Mr Falvey his vaccine. 

Another former Lord Mayor, Councillor Tony Fitzgerald described it as a "great moment".

"Glad to see former Lord Mayor Tim Falvey - a gentle man," he said.
