A heart has been erected in Bantry Town Square to pay tribute to frontline workers and also to those who have lost someone to Covid-19.
A message displayed above the structure reads: “For all frontline workers – a heartfelt thank you. To the people lost to Covid – we miss you.”
Nora Lynch, Immediate Past President, said some of the older members of the group who couldn’t be on the frontline wanted to show their support.
“We came up with a heart, Now the heart was a great idea but you must have somebody to make that heart real”
Nobby Dunne took on the job to create the heart and made a “fabulous job” of it. Nora said the Lions Club wanted to send their condolences to all the families who have lost someone to the pandemic.
“I hope this might… I don’t know, it might just help. They can tie a little ribbon or tie a flower on [the heart] for them."
"The heart is to show that we care and to reminded frontline workers and those who are grieving that they are not alone."
