My mother self isolated day one before any advice was given, and told us all to stay the f*ck away until this blew over - so I don't need to worry about that side of things at least.

Imagine being the chosen pilots for the mission. They must feel like Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck in the movie Armageddon.

Father in law is going to be a nightmare to cocoon.

My old pair are over 70 but still in the north. They live in the sticks but won't stop going to the bastard shops.

I think fair play to Leo and Simon. Feels like they are doing well in an unprecedented time.

Stay safe pricks.

Oh I definitely am on the list. My concern is my aunt who is a solicitor.

Transport workers like hauliers and bus/train drivers are considered essential jobs.

Anyone know if An Post will be essential? I’m waiting on an important package. The damn thing is already a week late. #iknowfirstworldproblems

Yes An Post after most definitely essential. Depends on whether your distributor had got the parcel out the door yet though.

The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, and Minister for Health, Simon Harris, have issued strict guidelines for people to stay at home from midnight tonight (Friday).

The main rule is to STAY AT HOME. The only times you can leave your home are:

to travel to or from work if you are providing an essential service The full list of essential services is available here.
to shop for food
to collect medical prescriptions and medical supplies and attend medical appointments
to carry out vital services like caring (including family carers)
for brief individual exercise - within 2 kilometres of your house. (You can bring children but must keep 2 metres away from others for social distancing)
for farming
You should not hold any private or public functions and this includes family functions for family who don't live in the same house.

All community centres will close. All public transport will be restricted to those carrying out essential travel for the reasons outlined above.

All non-essential businesses will close.

Shielding or coccooning of older and vulnerable people will come into place where they should not leave the house and arrange for others check on them and to bring shopping and medicines. There is a guide to cocooning here.

Except for the reasons above; you should not travel more than 2 kilometres from your home.

manage queue control inside and outside the door to maintain necessary physical distance.
all Essential Retail Outlets are encouraged to provide online services where that is possible and appropriate to minimise footfall.

That list isn't what people are looking for (which isn't available on the gov.ie site.) People want a list of essential work they can travel to and from, not everyone (and far from it) works in retail.

I should have seen this coming. I got an email from work on Tuesday to give my car registration and phone number to Comreg so that in the event of a lock down i was there to keep lights on as far as mobile phone networks are concerned.

I didn't join the dots at all. Senior management where I work knew

That would mean the guards can't go out and do their guarding. It's an old list for "Essential retail outlets." Anyone working with the ESB, Bord Gais, Eircom, etc. wouldn't be able to go to work.

From the website specifically
The main rule is to STAY AT HOME. The only times you can leave your home are:

to travel to or from work if you are providing an essential service The full list of essential services is available here.
to shop for food
to collect medical prescriptions and medical supplies and attend medical appointments

for brief individual exercise - within 2 kilometres of your house. (You can bring children but must keep 2 metres away from others for social distancing)
for farming
Which, perversely, and again assuming there isn't further clarification means all our factories including those producing ventilators will have to shut. They need to get their sh*t together quickly.

Not according to our government. I assume they'll clarify, but still it's a major f*ckup on their part far as I can tell.

That's what I'm saying. They left the wrong link in the page. One to "essential retail outlets" not one to "essential workers." I'd guess there'll be the right page linked to by tomorrow lunchtime, and yer man from the ESB is still gonna go to work.
