There’s no denying that in the last week or so many people’s patience is running thin. The ‘Be Kind’ movement has been forgotten, replaced by negativity, finger pointing and general nasty comments.

To try and find out if the pandemic has made us cranky, Mairead spoke to Dr. Philip Hyland from the Department of Psychology in Maynooth University who specialises in trauma and the effects of traumatic stress.

You might have read about collective trauma and how we're all going through stages of grief together, but Philip's research has shown there is no evidence that this can happen. While we're facing the prospect of a second lockdown, or are currently in one, people are reverting back to their natural cranky state!
