From cat fairs to museum tours - here are some online events to check out this weekend

With people being asked to stay indoors, many entertainment and fitness companies are hosting events online.

WE’RE HEADING INTO another weekend in Ireland with restrictions on movement in place in a bid to contain the spread of Covid-19.

So, with another few weeks ahead of us of the nation being asked to stay at home, we’ve compiled a list of some online events that people can take part in.

The event will be live-streamed on Zoom, so people can access the fun from the comfort of their homes.

For those who are looking to sit back and watch to television with their friends (from a distance) this weekend, Netflix Party is the place to go. 

Netflix Party synchronises video playback from different Netflix accounts and allows those watching together to use a group chat to, well, have the chats.

And finally, if you’re looking for new ways of keeping your fitness levels up, the Dublin Simon Community is hosting its new ‘Run @ Home’ event this month and next. 

People who sign up have one month to run the distance of a marathon. 

“You can run at home or get out into the fresh air and do a lap or two of your neighbourhood,” Dublin Simon Community says.
