This week on Ask Me Anything, Dermot & Dave were joined by a Primary Teacher.

Schools have been shut here since mid-March due the Covid-19 restrictions and teachers have had to adapt to a new way on working with their students.

Padraig Gaffney spoke to the lads all about this e-learning, including how it's hard for some children to work using technology, as they many come from families who don't have access to high speed internet.

Padraig also said that he doesn't believe schools can resume while social distancing is in place.

He revealed that most children in his school share desks, and

with the size of his classroom and the amount of children in it, it would be impossible to have all pupils back in at once.
