To help lighten up the mood during days of confinement, a bingo host in Dublin has brought bingo to the residents of a flat complex in the Irish capital, complete with Easter egg prizes.

Footage shows the host calling numbers from across a balcony inside the complex, with residents, young and old, participating in the games.

"It's brilliant, absolutely brilliant, especially for the small ones, that can't get out, and like they're in the house all the time with their parents. So it gives them [the residents] a little bit of a break, " said one resident.

With whole families stuck at home and children unable to go to school, people have been forced to get creative to keep themselves entertained.

According to recent figures, Ireland has logged just over 2,100 COVID-19 cases and 22 related deaths.
