A spokesperson said "As a company we’re doing what we can to support the healthcare workers on the frontline at this difficult time through donations of PPE and material for use in the manufacture of much needed protective equipment.

"Throughout Quinn Building Products and Quinn Packaging, we have donated all of our PPE stocks to various departments and wards in both South West Acute Hospital in Fermanagh and Cavan General Hospital and a number of local care providers. This includes face masks, safety glasses, white overalls and gloves."

Quinn Packaging have also donated plastic PET sheet to Magherafelt based Bloc Blinds for use in the manufacture of disposable face shields. The company hope to be able to produce 22,000 face shields per day which will provide vital direct splash face protection to those bravely working on the front line against Covid-19.
