When the Republic of Ireland went into coronavirus lockdown in March, musician Patrick Dexter began posting online videos of himself playing the cello.

Since then, the open-air concerts filmed outside his quaint cottage in Mayo on the rural west coast have been watched millions of times.

Patrick has also received messages from people around the world, including Irish expatriates, longing for their home during the pandemic.
