The Covid-19 diaries of two experienced volunteers:
Join us in following two volunteers Harry and Ciara who have been keeping diaries during the Covid-19 crisis.
Harry Canny* works for the fire service. Ciara Cara* is a volunteer with a number of local projects. Both have ample previous experience in activism and volunteering.
Ciara and Harry put into words things the rest of us are sometimes only beginning to think about. They both began writing at the start of this crisis and already have tracked the changes in life across Ireland. Both have similar aims; they hope you find encouragement in their words while they write bluntly and honestly.
A sometimes wild, thought-provoking, long-hand account by an experienced volunteer and activist, a townie and firefighter on call. He always thought days like this could come our way. Has a way with words. Says things most people haven’t thought about, but may need to yet. He likes danger.
A fabulous account by a rural-dweller caring now for vulnerable relatives. Giving it her best online to continue with important volunteer pursuits. Lived in Dublin for years and has volunteered abroad. Shorter, quick-read entries.
Our diarists are going to remain anonymous. Harry and Ciara are pseudonyms.
