I watched that- doesn’t excuse the pikeys but the waiters shouldn’t have pursued them to the end of the road. It was basically a gang fight.

Nice vibes out west, anyway. Good buzz about the place without being crazy busy, outdoor dining seems to be going well, people smiling - it's good to see at last.

A couple of years ago we were in a street/touristy eating area of Milan. An Italian scobie grabbed some womans handbag and made a run for it. Waiters from all the restaurants , including those in front of him, caught him and gave him a kicking. He was nearly pleading for the police to come and arrest him.

One of our local gangsters was killed in Thailand by waiters, it was all caught on video- the bloke was an arsehole mind.

Them lads in south William street should have stopped at the roundhouse kick- lucky not to get really hurt- only takes the broken glass to be a few inches lower...

three of those skangers were charged on Friday. The lad who glassed the waiter will get a few months in the Joy. The rest will do community service

Sewa you are full of shit - that was a gang of 6 or more feral scumbags who are heading for a life in jail or on drugs - they would put a knife into your chest without giving it a second thought. I don’t care how tough you think you are, you are an idiot if you try to engage them

Ssshhhh!!

I suppose the only reason to highlight this would be insurance, which would presumably be voided for anything related to these tables. Bit of a grey area though, restaurants can claim they're offering 'takeaway' which puts the law firmly onto the clientele and all that needs to happen then is everyone temporarily forgetting about the law? :nod:

Just copy whatever law they have in London, you can go in get a pint and stand outside anywhere within 50 feet and no one ever says anything.

Slightly more in this article and reading between the lines I think it's just the Gardai pointing out they can clamp down if restaurants/pubs are taking the piss. Hopefully.

If not then yes some temporary legislation will be required.

That's my reading of it as well, together with a plea to the legislators to sort out the law.

This was a group of skangers looking for trouble. A sadly all too familiar thing, pre- and during Covid. Disagree with him all you like, but blaming him for that incident is a bit daft IMO.
More generally I don't get the Houlahan-hate. He has a job to do which is to represent the medical side and he's doing that. The overwhelming blame is with our government who appear to be too scared/ignorant to blend that with the other imperatives - political, economic etc. I'd cut any government a bit of slack in managing a crisis situation, but with the length of time we've been in this and the learnings we can draw from other countries, we've (as in our leaders) have been pretty abject

More generally, as pointed out by other posters in this thread, we've had issues with public order, public drinking etc for a long time and haven't tackled them. Those problems are just resurfacing to greater public attention at the moment IMO
he's not though ; he did a job to "flatten the curve" when it started and lockdown was the answer ; his answer 16 months later when all the "At risk" are vaccinated seems to be the same ; he has shown no desire to look at the overall impact of his advice on the health of the irish public ; there were 19 people in ICU last week ; he continue to lie about antigen testing and the role it can play in opening up the airline industry and save 1000's of jobs and the health of people who are on the verge of losing said jobs ; he has shown no desire to find solutions to address the impact on the health of the nation throughout this crisis ; from waiting for study reports on mask wearing to outdoor socialising, to antigen testing ; he somehow manages to sell this as being cautious as though there's no downside to any of it ;

NLY 4% OF people in Ireland say they are unsure whether they will get vaccinated for Covid-19, a new survey has found.

A survey conducted by Ipsos MRBI for the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association (IPHA) heard that 89% of people intend to take a vaccine or have already received one – 6% said they would refuse a vaccine.

Gardaí arrested a 15 year old boy in Temple Bar yesterday carrying a stolen bottle of Vodka. When they searched him they found a knuckle duster. He was later released into the custody of his parents.

Was out in town Saturday night for a few, defo a lot of young scobies hanging around and mixing in with people. And yeah Holohans dhould never have said there was a festival atmosphere in DUblin. We all know the drill. You go way down the country out of range with alternative bands if you want a festival. We'll be lucky if there isn't a repeat of the Swedish House massacre at this rate.

Yes that's all well and good but those cops aren't there to stop scummers in your local area - they are there to stop religious fundamentalists driving trucks over the locals.

We've one of the lowest rates of cops per capita in Europe I think. France has nearly double the number we do I think.

I thought it was just a term referring to their skrawny statute and stupid puffed up posture as they strut around trying to look like hardmen.

What on earth can you do?
Call Roadhouse waiter?

Was out in town Saturday night for a few, defo a lot of young scobies hanging around and mixing in with people. And yeah Holohans dhould never have said there was a festival atmosphere in DUblin. We all know the drill. You go way down the country out of range with alternative bands if you want a festival. We'll be lucky if there isn't a repeat of the Swedish House massacre at this rate.

Registered for the vaccine :smug:
:lol:

I was having dinner on Saturday night with my wife in my local town. There is a strip of about 8 restaurants in a 100 meter seafront prom and at all stages of the evening there were at least 12 heavily tooled up gendarmes patrolling the area.
Want less hassle!!, get more cops.
We've one of the lowest rates of cops per capita in Europe I think. France has nearly double the number we do I think.
We've more than england and wales anyway, last I checked.

I don’t think that’s what he meant. I’m amazed it’s a condition.

Anyone got their head around ordering stuff from amazon UK and the import fees?

I'm looking at the echo ear buds. They're £50 but when I try to get them delivered to Ireland it ends up at £73. As I understand it there's no customs on delivery for orders under €150 and even the rrp comes under that. I think part of what's happening is that they're removing the UK vat from both the order but also discount and then applying the Irish vat. However the Irish vat they're adding is on the rrp, not what I'm paying. If I understand what's happening correctly the most I should pay is about £60 as I'm not getting the vat discount so I pay Irish vat over the £50.

I got a refund recently from amazon of around €5 for overcharging, should I risk my understanding as being correct and wait for refund?
