Most cafes will reopen but wont go back to sit in. They make more money on the takeaway and less overheads

Was speaking to the barista who said pubs are closed until September at the earliest but the likelihood is they wont be reopening this year.
Presumably he's gotten his info from the fake Tony Holohan message?
A message had been circulating around WhatsApp earlier this week purporting to show a letter claiming to be signed by Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan stating that all of Ireland’s pubs are to remain shut until 1 September at the earliest.

Having a look at the independents elected in the GE, and pondering whether they would support a FF-FG led government. I'm only familiar with a handful of them, so will need assistance from others to complete.
Cathal Berry[a] Kildare South Don't know
Seán Canney Galway East Decent enough bloke, would likely support
Michael Collins Cork South-West Don't know
Catherine Connolly Galway West Far left looper, support extremely unlikely
Michael Fitzmaurice Roscommon–Galway Likes destroying the environment, weird looking mofo, could possibly support
Peter Fitzpatrick Louth Don't know
Noel Grealish Galway West Ex PD, recently acquired taste for racism, could possibly support
Marian Harkin Sligo–Leitrim Decent enough, political affinity with FF, would likely support
Danny Healy-Rae Kerry Prince of the gobshites, could be convinced to support with the right 'enticements'
Michael Healy-Rae Kerry Populist opportunist who could be convinced to support with the right 'enticements'
Michael Lowry Tipperary Crook, ex FG, who knows?
Mattie McGrath Tipperary From the FF genepool, could possibly support
Michael McNamara Clare Don't know
Verona Murphy[a] Wexford Don't know
Denis Naughten Roscommon–Galway Decent bloke, FG gene pool, would likely support

My local restaurant is operating as a food shop at the moment.

The quality of meat and veg is insane. Can't speak for the fish - I rarely bother cooking it at home - but even the spuds are better quality than normal.

There’s a fish trailer in the village every Wednesday and the quality and range of fish is unbelievable, with John Dory, black sole, turbot and plate sized plaice readily available. Obviously we’re getting the restaurant quality fish now, so we’re taking full advantage of it. Had lovely barbecued tuna for lunch last Wednesday. :P

Doesn’t matter which faction of indos or left wing parties support the FF/FG government formation plans ...... the proposals themselves are a recipe for disaster

The centre/centre right dominance of Irish government over the last 60 years has turned this country into one of the wealthiest, fairest, best governed countries in the world ..... yet here we are, pandering to the left, with an “everything for free”, deficit-driven, economically illiterate, utopian document, that has zero basis in reality........ as if we have something to apologize for.

When even the socDems and Sinn Fein are asking (justifiably) “where is the money coming from”, then you realize just how ludicrous the FF/FG position paper is. This courting of the left never results in increased support ..... just ask Labour

Be in no doubt, the bond markets WILL NOT continue to fund a country with spiraling debt. Irish National debt will in 2021, likely be around €250bn ...... or FIVE TIMES what it was in 2007

If politicians think the answer to that is free childcare, universal healthcare, no tax increases, no social welfare reductions, no Public sector pay cuts etc etc etc ....... then our children and their children are truly fvcked.

I know the document is solely for the purposes of luring the greens, socDems and Labour to the table, but the Irish people deserve the unvarnished truth from FF/FG ..... especially in the face of the magic money tree nonsense coming from the hard left

This joint proposal is an absolutely craven dereliction of duty by Ireland’s so called centrist parties

who it cons into government is a sideshow ..... what it means for the economic sustainability of the state is the real question that people need to be asking

Actually don't see the point in attacking Boris right now. All that helps is constructive criticism in terms of the current approach. They can sling all the mud they want after the fact.
If they don't get held to account for their mistakes, they'll continue to make them.
It's as if you didn't read any of what I posted.

If they're making mistakes currently, hold them to account. Lambasting them for not locking down sooner is completely pointless.

Again, with the war analogy, it's pointless criticising past mistakes in battles unless it will help future or current battles. In this instance, attacking Boris for not locking down sooner is a pointless exercise.
Completely agreed. Time and place, etc. All it will do is polarise people in a crisis further which is dumb, especially from those who will have lost family members and friends.

Calm down and use your noggin luv.

This has got nothing to do with the public and everything to do with securing the Greens and internal FF party politics.

There is the mother of all battles coming so you need to ease on the Ronnie for a while and dial up the Tip.

We've reached the limit of soft support lads.

Posted on the other thread but the DM has posted a timeline of a suggested lockdown relaxation. Seems sensible and I would imagine, if true or partially correct, ROI would see something similar.

I assume you live in a house with fields around...?


Try staying in a 1/2 bed city centre appt for 2 months.
A bit of realism and sympathy.


I think we are reaching the stage where its those at risk need to go into lockdown and the rest of us return to normal.


Que the comments of me being a sterile unsympathetic prick.
To be fair I probably am. I think the state should stop cervical checks too....

I won't be killing people in Ireland though so fear not.

I went for 45k cycle today and a takeaway coffee on the banks of the Rhine.

Definitely. Holohan and co. saying we've essentially suppressed it was a nice pat on the back to everyone who made an effort but also allowed everyone to relax their standards. To be honest, it's not actually that bad for it to be happening. We're not going to suppress this completely so if we start a new slow spread it won't be the end of the world. We won't be able to wait it out for anti virals/vaccine.

We had 1 today in NI which is obviously still very low even for weekend numbers. NI people have done really well generally and most of the country is reasonably rural, which helps. Although a doctor friend of mine said because we (and probably ROI) have done well it opens the possibility of a longer lockdown since we may not even have peaked yet. I agree with you though, it’s not ever going away and we do need to move on sometime.

If we both close our borders/ask any visitors to self isolate when they arrive then there's a small chance we could open up the island but I just don't see it working.

Lockdown was never going to be possible for more than a few weeks. The good weather probably bought us an extra bit of grace. We have to face the reality that we can’t suspend life indefinitely. A slow unwinding of the restrictions needs to start so that people can see an end to this whilst not letting our guard down and ending up back at square one with an overloaded health service.

It's clearly contrary to the regulations we're all supposed to be following unless you think flying a plane is a form of exercise? Supposing he/she crashes? But, sure as long you think it's grand that all that counts.

You can see it everywhere that it is breaking down and I need myself to refocus.

Quing outside the chemist and a couple of lads in their 50s saying the had to move it to this Friday because you need at least 7 for Texas Hold Em
Definitely. Holohan and co. saying we've essentially suppressed it was a nice pat on the back to everyone who made an effort but also allowed everyone to relax their standards. To be honest, it's not actually that bad for it to be happening. We're not going to suppress this completely so if we start a new slow spread it won't be the end of the world. We won't be able to wait it out for anti virals/vaccine.
We had 1 today in NI which is obviously still very low even for weekend numbers. NI people have done really well generally and most of the country is reasonably rural, which helps. Although a doctor friend of mine said because we (and probably ROI) have done well it opens the possibility of a longer lockdown since we may not even have peaked yet. I agree with you though, it’s not ever going away and we do need to move on sometime.
If we both close our borders/ask any visitors to self isolate when they arrive then there's a small chance we could open up the island but I just don't see it working.
No doubt some plum will take exception to being allowed to travel down south but not to the UK

How many passengers did he have onboard? If he was on his own then he’s not breaking any social distancing rules so I wouldn’t be too bothered. He’s getting to enjoy himself more than the rest of us which might be an issue for you but he’s not really posing any threat in regard to the spread of the virus
There's a collective responsibility in all of this. What would have happened if the aircraft got into difficulty?

Dont think there's any going back to normal lads. Humanity has to figure out how to live with this thing and hope to fück we can create a vaccine.

Or it fucks off by itself like SARS did.

It's clearly contrary to the regulations we're all supposed to be following unless you think flying a plane is a form of exercise? Supposing he/she crashes? But, sure as long you think it's grand that all that counts.
Just trying to give a bit of perspective. While it is contrary to travel regulations, there’s more dangerous ways of breaking them than flying a plane on your own (assuming that’s the case ). The risk of spreading the virus is minimal. Obviously he’s the biggest prick in the world if he crashes and puts more pressure on the health service
