Meals on Wheels Gorey, as well as Gorey Community Support, played a vital role to help the most vulnerable during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic here.

As restrictions ease and cocooners re-enter society, the need may be somewhat less but the hard work continues on.

While Gorey Community Support delivered its last meals on Friday, Meals on Wheels Gorey now enters its 15th week of Covid response.

The team were recently joined by Sergeant Evelyn Reddan and Garda Kyrie O'Neill who assisted in delivering meals.

Colin Webb explained that the gardaí provided the 'wheels' in 'Meals on wheels', bringing the team around in the Community Policing cars.

'Evelyn was on Route C and Kyrie on Route A in Gorey. The Community Policing has really done amazing work in assisting many community groups in the response to the pandemic. They have kept in constant contact with us and have shown their concern for our elderly and isolated.

'Thanks to everyone at Wexford Garda Division for their continued support; it's very much appreciated,' he said.

Donations have continued, with Irish Rural Link donating PPE supplies to volunteers, and one deliverer, Phelim Gallagher, dropping in some Boston donuts and all are hopeful that an end is in sight.
