Grainne Gallanagh Reveals How Her Family Felt When She Returned To Nursing

Grainne has been on the front line during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Grainne Gallanagh has received much praise online for her decision to return to nursing during the Covid-19 pandemic. Similarly, to influencer Terrie McEvoy, she switched her OOTD’s for nurses scrubs as she returned to the HSE to help those on the front lines battling the virus.

It’s a scary time for our front line workers as they come into contact with multiple patients a day, and have to follow rigorous hygiene practices as well as wearing PPE.

In an interview on TG4 with Hector Ó hEochagáin she revealed on the show that her parents were a “bit worried” when she made the decision to go back into nursing.

The former Miss Universe shared that she had no qualms re-registering for the HSE; “When I moved home I thought the best thing for me to do was to go back and help out because I had no other obligations, nothing to stop me and I like working, I like my job.”

The Donegal native also spoke about how difficult it is for some of the patients; “I think the saddest thing is that people can’t have any visitors they can’t have anyone in with them, that’s the worst I think.”

She went on to say that;  “When you’re not well the one thing that makes you feel better is having the people you want around you so I think that’s the hardest thing.”

 All the pictures show Grainne dressed up to the nines (sometimes with a glass of wine in hand) as she poses in fields with cows, on a tractor, whilst mowing the lawn.

They are hilarious, and she somehow manages to make all these activities look as glam as possible.
