One of the things the Brennan family has created is a "McDonald's Drive-Thru" in their yard in Clonbur, Co Galway. With the boys seated in the passenger seat of his car, Dave does a U-turn in their front yard, then he drives up to one of the front windows of their home, where Vikki and the family dog take the kids’ order.

Wearing a red cap, their mom leans out the window and says: "Welcome to McDonald's. May I take your order please?"

They order a Happy Meal and chicken nuggets, then dad drives up to the next window where mom hands over some fruit shoots and homemade “Happy Meal” packs.

These fun-loving parents have come up with many different ways to ease the burden of the lockdown on their young sons.

"We made them a slide out of mattresses down the stairs, some rock painting, treasure hunting, walks up the road with our dogs, discos,” Dave told The Irish Mirror.

"We made them a cardboard shop and also had a St Patrick's Day parade."
