Churches and mosques remained shut over the weekend, but congregations still found a way to connect with their faith.

Religious services were relayed via webcam and radio to stem the spread of Covid-19 and comply with social distancing directives.

After Sunday Mass, which was streamed live from St John's Cathedral in Limerick, Bishop Brendan Leahy admitted: "None of this is easy. It doesn't come naturally to us to isolate, to restrict our movements like this."
