ANYONE UP FOR some outdoor bingo?

As people across the country try to maintain a distance of at least two metres from each other, it can be difficult to partake in social activities during this time.

People living in Ringsend in Dublin city today made the most of their time apart by playing a game of bingo.

A crowded bingo hall would not be the wisest decision at the moment, so people instead took to their balconies to take part in a game. 

It might not be the most efficient bingo in the world, but difficult times call for a bit of al fresco bingo.  

Other good news

In other non-coronavirus news, of which there is little at the moment, people have been taking beautiful pictures of the sunset this evening.
