A new campaign is offering a bright new way to thank the everyday heroes and frontline workers keeping the country running through the COVID-19 crisis.
From tonight, the #DearHeroes campaign will be projecting messages of love and support from the public across the Mater Hospital.
People can submit their personalised messages online and see them projected across the front of the hospital over the next four nights.
The display will also be streamed online and across social media so people can follow along from home.

Spokesperson Ciara Finn said anyone who wants to offer their support can submit their personalised message at DearHeroes.ie or post it on Twitter using the hashtag #DearHeroes.
“Once that message is submitted, we will project the positive message across the Mater Hospital for the healthcare workers and the patients to see,” she said.
She said the campaign aims to “boost morale during a challenging and distressing time for the nation and to give back to those who are working tirelessly to protect us all.”
“Like everyone else, we’ve been blown away by the dedication and selflessness of those who are battling at the frontline to help us through the Covid-19 outbreak,” she said.
“We wanted to use our assets and skillset so we can all show our love and admiration for them.”
The messages will be projected across the hospital and broadcast live on DearHeroes.ie from 9pm until 2am for four nights from Good Friday to Easter Monday.
