Over the past few months, the vast majority of us will have experienced a wide spectrum of emotions as a result of the guidelines set up by the government in an effort to keep Covid-19 at bay.

But this week one simple photograph appeared to capture the mood of a nation grappling with a new shared reality.

John Joe Quinn was spotted enjoying a meal and a pint of stout in McGinn's Hop House in Galway's Woodquay, with his alarm clock set beside him.

An image of old routines folded into a new way of living.

John Joe joined Susan to chat about his new-found fame, life in Galway, and how he has been getting on since the pandemic started.
