Who'd have thought that rugby stars would be playing such a big role in getting accommodation sorted for Ireland's frontline workers?
Last week, we brought you news of former Leinster back-row Sean O'Brien generously providing free accommodation for a pair of staff nurses in Dublin.
And now, Ronan O'Gara has used his social media presence to find a doctor a place to stay amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
When O'Gara found out that former teammate Tom Gleeson, who is now a doctor with the Health Service Executive, was in need of short-term accommodation in Cork city, he put the call out to his 400,000 Twitter followers.
Need to help a great teammate that has become a posh doctor🤪🤪.Let’s get on this Cork.. https://t.co/08ycgNipq4

And it wasn't long after the legendary Munster out-half posted the tweet that he received a promising response.
Just a couple of hours after asking for help, O'Gara revealed that his doctor friend had been sorted out.
"Great teamwork," O'Gara tweeted, while Gleeson praised the public support at a time when frontline workers need it most.
Big relief to have somewhere to stay sorted now thanks to Dave Whelan of 1st choice property! Very lucky to have such great support from the public and thanks to everyone(and there were lots) who offered accomodation @RonanOGara10 @patphelan @RichardMForde #COVID2019

On Sunday, it was revealed that An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar had rejoined the medical register and will assist the frontline by working a session a week.
