Dublin footballer Dr Jack McCaffrey has sent a video message to the Irish public as they come to terms with restrictions due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

The Dubs' flying half-back made a general plea for Irish people to stringently follow the directives laid down by the Health Service Executive in a bid to contain the Covid-19 virus.

"The reason for this video is that I'm looking for people to continue to do their bit, whether that be washing their hands coming in and out of the house, whether that be avoiding public gatherings," he said.

"I just want to thank everybody who's been helping so far and re-emphasise how important they are.

"So please, please, please continue to follow those instructions and thank you very much."
