The clip [above] features Naas man Tommy McCormack, who is living with dementia, and his wife Annette as she brings him to take part in one of the highlights of his week – singing with the Kildare Pastimes Choir, which works with people living with dementia, their families and carers.

Keeping Ireland Alive: The Health Service In A Day brings viewers the health service as they’ve never seen it before. Filmed over one 24-hour period in May with 75 cameras at locations throughout the country, this five-part series pushes beyond the headlines to tell the human stories at the heart of this often controversial but most vital service.
