"Elaine, so, so sorry to hear this. Love to you and your family," added another.

Elaine had been absent from Ireland AM as Lisa Cannon stepped in to take over for.

In April, Elaine spoke about her mum Mary V's battle with cancer.

Elaine said: "My mother was particularly sick a few months back and it was hard because I couldn't spend time with her like I wanted to.

"But my siblings and I are all roped in to care for mam now. I get my regular Covid tests and we all take turns."

She told VIP Magazine: "She can't stay nights on her own, so we go down and do that.

"But, I just can't pop up and down at weekends just to see her and spend time with her as I would have before the pandemic and that is terrible.

"At least I have my turn when I am caring for her.

"I think if you are healthy and nothing awful has happened to the health of your loved ones, everything else isn't a problem really."
