Kerry GAA legend Colm Cooper has joined forces with 15 fellow Irish sports stars for a powerful video message that encourages social distancing.

In the video, Gooch joins the likes of Brian O’Driscoll, Bernard Brogan, Shane Lowry, Derval O’Rourke and Paul McGrath in asking the Irish public to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by adhering to government guidelines in relation to staying at home and avoiding social contact.

The prominent sportspeople also praise the work of all the medical practitioners, nurses and doctors working on the frontline.


The #UniteByStayingApart campaign video was produced by Conor Ridge of Horizon Sports Management and Irish film director Ross Whitaker with the objective of re-enforcing the important role each Irish person can play in stemming the spread of COVID-19.
