AROUND 200 PEOPLE have taken part in a socially-distanced mass dance in Dublin.

Spaces were marked out eight feet apart, the organiser said.

The event was held at a complex of flats in Ringsend and was the brainchild of Danika Hopkins and Rebecca Larkin.

Her husband Michael Larkin (52) said: “It is very important because I have got five kids and we are on lock down like everyone else.

“Everyone is fed up so it is to entertain our flat complex.”

In Ireland a two-kilometre limit applies for exercise.

Larkin added: “It is really for the kids and the older folk.

“It is really good for their mental health and wellbeing.”
