Two brothers and their dad produce 1,000 face shields for medical staff

Ollie Reilly (13), George Reilly (10) and their dad ‘Mick Reilly’ have produced over 1,000 face shield frames in response to the urgent appeal for PPE.

Mick O’Reilly, a chief technical officer for the school of engineering in Trinity College Dublin, has also created 300 full face shields with his two sons.

Mick took six 3D printers from Trinity to his home in Kildare to produce the shields.

The frames are printed in line with the PPE-Hub protocols.

The Kildare family will be donating the shields to front line medical staff throughout Dublin and Kildare.
