Dermot will also voice his support for the work of Brother Kevin's Capuchin Day Centre in Dublin. Orla Tinsley, writer, campaigner and Cystic Fibrosis advocate will be speaking from her home in New York, discussing how she is coping with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the extra precautions those with CF need to take.
