The entire 150 residents of a Roscommon village have been Covid tested for free, as part of a pilot programme for rapid results testing.

The Sunday Times reports that the church car park in Lecarrow, near Lough Ree, has acted as a pop up centre over four Saturdays.

Villagers received their results from the Antigen tests in just 18 minutes - they're delivered via text.

Funding for the project came from the company Roqu - it hopes this kind of testing can be used for events and to cut the need for lockdowns.
