From superhero face masks to a 'Covid concert' for cocooners, here are 5 positive things happening now:
1. Contortionist Kelly Saabel from Tom Duffy Circus has a unique way to put on her face mask.
2. Co Cork artist Will Sliney, best known for his work on Marvel Comics Spider-Man and Star Wars, has created a range of comic book inspired face mask covers for young EasyJet flyers. The airline said it hopes the face mask covers helped to ease the experience of flying for both kids and parents. Will said he hopes his designs "bring out the inner superhero in all young flyers".
