The first six months of 2020 were the strangest of times. An unknown virus was spreading globally that brought social distancing, incredible uncertainty and sadly death. It also brought cocooning, the 2 km travel limit and delicious banana bread. Working from home in Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim, RTÉ Journalist Carole Coleman kept a detailed diary of Covid’s first 100 days.

Her lively personal story may remind you of your own town, family and
friends – or amaze you about what you missed. While home schooling teenagers, remotely broadcasting Sunday’s This Week radio programme, and chatting with nearly everyone, “News from Under a Coat Stand” provides a poignant, serious, yet often hilarious account of a time Ireland and the world will
never forget.
