Table service only maybe.

I’d be delighted if I could have one that early. Can’t see it happening though
Speaking to local public an yesterday and he was speculating that it could even be as late as next spring. He cannot see any way it will happen before the autumn.

People are definitely getting more lax about the restrictions, seeing large family groups walking along the paths outside my house and a few streets over with my telescope.
5 or 6 in a group, taking up the whole path, chunts.

Wife hadn't been out in a few weeks, went out for a walk yesterday evening, got to Ranelagh Rd and turned back. Said it was jammed. As you say, groups taking up all the path, loads of runners etc.

Yes we are heading into one hell of a recession, but probably for the first time in our history we are heading into one at exactly the same time is everyone else. And probably for the first time it is not due to her own fecklessness and stupidity. And unlike some other countries which are heavily dependent on internal consumption to drive their economy, like the UK, the pharmaceutical and tech focus of ours me means it is likely to get back on track quicker than others. The tourist industry is buggered but then so is everyone’s tourist industry. The critical issue really will be, what are the Germans prepared to do to allow support for the Eurozone and for those countries especially badly here such as Italy and Spain. The key concern for all countries is what it will do to get out of recession and this is where we could fudge up.

The way some people are moaning about not being able to get a pint/haircut you'd swear we're being asked to swarm Normandy beach rather than find something new on netflix to watch.

Job losses are a different kettle of fish granted.

That's a lot of new cases, is that due to the tests in nursing homes?

I get that we're not exactly storming Normandy and I had to stop myself from saying "stay safe" to someone earlier today that has/is going through a lot worse shit than the coronavirus (there's a lot worse shit going on in the world) ....but yes, I would murder a pint/sit down somewhere for dinner with the family etc. ; pretty sure that's what Michael Collins fought for ?

yup, for once we didn't author our own downfall and I'm relatively optimistic as to how we get out of it ; the other side of the coin though is that while every country is fcuked for once we won't be able to get on the next flight to London, New York, Toronto, Sydney as a solution ; which in a way may not be all bad in the very long run

Fantastic writer but he disappeared up his hole a long time ago and seems to have gone full retard in the last few years.
Was he a fantastic writer? He always seemed to be a cúnt in the IT.
Nah, back in his Hot Press and Magill days, and indeed in his early days in the IT, he was a very good writer. He went off the rails sometime in the 90s when he re-imagined himself as a new DeValera saving traditional/rural Ireland from the depredations of the D4/6 pro EU 'modernising' elite.
I wasn't reading the IT too much in the 90s. Other than the sports news. :lol:

I always got the vibe he was a contrarian who was furious when Ireland became a bit liberal and left him on the side of the winners.

Reminds me of the resentment of all those authors who felt betrayed Fine Gael/Labour were behind same-sex marriage.
I was young-ish back then and remember the massive feud between the IT writers and the Sindo crew (mainly Dunphy). Waters was the focus of some pretty personal criticism then and I remember feeling a bit sorry for him.
Now I concede that Dunphy may have had a point.

Every time I feel sympathy for GOD (her husband died of MN), I remember that people are going to die because of her anti-vax lunacy.

Dr Holohan also gave a breakdown in of the ages ofpeople who had died after a diagnosis of Covid-19:

70 years +: 667 deaths
60 to 69 years: 53 deaths
50 to 59 years - 29 deaths
40 - 49 years: 12 deaths
30 - 40 years: fewer than five deaths
20 - 30 years: fewer than five deaths
0 - 20 years: no deaths
By my count, 8 deaths below 40.

Looks like the forum is no more. Lads I have wasted a f**king incredible amount of time on here with you. This place is more addictive than crack. The shitfights were all brilliant. Some worthy adversaries on here. I hope to see you all at the Christmas cabal in Mulligans Poolbeg street.

We have one that is used to organise cabals. Some people have serious lives in real life. It’s the anonymity that makes this place a bit of craic.

Agreed, but hard to keep in contact without losing anonymity to a large extent.
