Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Martin Taoiseach until Dec 2022 until the Programme for Government, longer than anticipated? Balls out move by FF in fairness, risky but a risk that they think they have to take? Would have thought 2 and half years would make the most sense as opposed to chopping and changing. Means FG lead into th...

No absolutely.

You just sometimes lose sight in all of this that several thousand deaths is an awful lot. We almost become "immune" to the numbers.
