It’s a testament to their work that the virus never made it into the nursing home, that none of their residents, the most vulnerable among us, succumbed to the disease. It’s a testament to them as people that they sacrificed their own personal lives for the welfare of others, that they risked bringing home a virus which could have killed their family members, that they missed family occasions which will never come around again.

And yet, like those in Wexford town, the staff of Knockeen Nursing Home in Barntown, continue to wait patiently for a payment they were told they would receive at the start of the year.
