Today Mairead spoke to Bernie Sherry - the woman behind an initiative to bring back 'making a céilí' to tackle rural loneliness.

Bernie would often make a céilí with her parents when she was growing up - which is going to visit friends and neighbours. Now in her role as Health and Wellbeing Officer for Scotstown GAA in Monaghan, Bernie is bringing back making a céilí.

We all have a few people we've been meaning to visit, and Bernie wants us to stop putting it off and have those face to face connections. As she says, "you don't have to love alone to be lonely" and everyone will appreciate the company.

It's a less global, more local approach that will make a big difference in our lives.
