IN an interview in this week’s Gaelic Life, Tyrone star Conor Meyler reveals his pride in his mother Paula, an Intensive Care unit nurse tending to Covid-19 patients in South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen
Meyler is keeping busy himself, writing some informative and well-received pieces for professional networking site LinkedIn as well as channelling his inner ‘Joe Wicks’ with a series of exercise videos to try and help others through this prolonged and testing period of isolation.
On his mum’s work on the front-line, he said: “We have a full understanding really of how difficult the situation is, and how difficult it is for the nurses as well.
“People don’t see the work that they’re doing and the stress that it brings on them. It’s very challenging, but I’m very proud of what she’s doing as well.
“She’s not one to complain, and we have a real appreciation here for the work that they are doing, because we see first hand what it’s like.”
