You can sign up for both.

NPR seems livelier.

Seems the certificate issue is resolved.

Anyone have any good articles on Ireland asylum seeker stats/process? Seeing as DP is the next thing everyone is losing their minds about I'd like to read up on it a little.

I'm going to call it a day. Looks like the bulk of posters have migrated to the new forum and the traffic here has slowed down a lot.

I've been posting here for over a decade. I was early twenties when I started and this place has been one of the few constants over that time period, weird as it is to think that. I enjoyed the rugby chat but it was also good to talk nonsense with lads who wouldn't be on the same wavelength on the political spectrum as I would be so thanks for that.

All the best gents. Nols, if I show up on the new forum please put me a metaphorical bullet in me.

They might get shut down again sooner than they think if it becomes a big problem.

As I've said from the start, we're relying on compliance as we can't enforce. I guess these places know that and aren't bothered. We also don't have a good enough way to trace so they can never be held accountable.

I've recently seen the difference between a couple of hours and a couple of hours later and yeah, people forget after a couple of hours.

Great night last night. Was out early and got 3 to 4 Heinos early on, social distancing was very much optional! Got some food then and again a great atmosphere, went well over the 105 minutes and got a flat white at the end. Onto another pub then, it was heaving, great to see so many out filling up the tills. Can’t even remember if it was over 105 minutes - it was hard to tell at the bar, I saw a few stopwatches out but I think we might just have avoided the virus!

Like I said when it goes Leicester or Texas we can all thank our friendly neighbourhood publican.

It's only a matter of time until we get a sweet caroline moment and it's no more creamy pints for another 4 months.

Such a shame too, it was good of the virus to allow that extra 15 minutes from what we were originally getting.

Yes it's about the virus

It's not about limiting the number of people an infected person could infect.

You're smarter than the experts...if a sick person is a confined place for 4 hours or 90 minutes are the going to infect more or less people? :lol: what a genius

Behaviours also change, as I said above, when you're drunk and the more you use the toilets, the higher the risk.

All of this is about reducing risk not eliminating it.

BB's has abandoned his pretence about being objective, I see.

Don't think I'll be going to the pub any time soon. Wonder if we'll see a spike in the next week or so.

Except for the fact that the more you rotate through people, the more people who can come into contact. There was no guidelines on doing slots - some places are doing that but others are not. The guidelines issued were a mess.

I was talking to an actual restaurant/bar owner yesterday. Slammed with bookings and walk ups. Better off kicking people out and bringing new people in? Better off with infected people doing pub crawls?

Let's not start with the experts nonsense again from you, you've already decided what experts you do and don't follow.

The 105 minutes is like the food thing. It's about "behaviours", they don't want people drunk and "breaking social distancing".

This is great. First we had lads on here going ape when Dunnes were selling some bath mats during the lockdowns, now it's curtain twitching over people getting a bite to eat.

I am taking the piss as some of you lads for taking what was advice far too seriously.

No pub wants to be the one splashed out on Joe Duffy by Geraldine or Mullet for singing Sweet Caroline.

Prepare yourselves for some infections, that's life. We should have good systems in place to deal with it and avoid mass outbreaks. If pubs don't, they'll be made to pay through bad publicity. Get on with things and just behave sensibly.

Health expert says holidays 'safe if precautions taken'
A professor of medicine at the Mater Hospital said he believes it is safe for people to go on holidays, provided they take appropriate precautions, such as wearing face masks and practicing social distancing and good hand hygiene.

Dr Jack Lambert said that while there is currently no end point with Covid-19, there is an end point with the economy and how long people can live in lockdown.
Sensible.

Other experts say no though.

How's Statto disagreeing with him?

If people take precautions holidays are safe.

If people took precautions we'd have no demand for social housing.
