This Mother's day is set to be like no other.

Just like St Patrick's day, the coronavirus outbreak has affected another special day spent closely with family.

With many older people staying at home and children and young adults unable to visit their mothers and grandmothers, this unique day for Irish mothers will be celebrated differently to say the least.

In response RTÉ have launched the #RTELoveOurMammies campign. They want to see all your photos and videos of the day and how you celebrated your mother.

The campaign follows similar efforts for a virtual St Patrick's day and RTÉ 2FM's #CreateDontContaminate campaign.

Kodaline, The Script, Picture This, the Coronas, and Lottie Ryan supported the campaign and urged young people to stay at home and help prevent the spread of coronavirus and create content from their homes in the process.
