This is the kind of moronic take you'd see on twitter with some wingnut claiming that we didn't need to lockdown because of how few deaths there were, after locking down.
I'm not on twinter as I am not of a generation that would vote the Shinners into power while aborting babies a go go. The younger are in a death spiral and I think that is why the 20's/30's birds with all the repeal Facebook frames are loving the Covid and being able to shite on about staying at home and banning tourists from having pudding. So it is the natural space for you but Mullet and Stats are more inexplicable but I suppose they have been sheltered from the real world unlike extremely well travelled persons such as myself

Just looked at the hospital admissions there. I think I'm right in saying that yesterday's report was the first day since the first covid admission that there hasn't been any confirmed cases admitted to hospital.

11 confirmed cases in hospital, all ICU.

What people do is they make up symptoms if they are worried and then they get the test 'eh doc I have all the symptoms except a temp. Very poorly'
All for free?

I reckon the Irish Government are delaying lifting the quarantine rules now because there will be some announcement on testing being available when you land, close to the airport. Varadkar talked about paying before, they'll need someone to administer to.
is there any update on this BB ? I saw an add in the paper last week - a company that was testing for business travellers on arrival at the airport so that they meet clients worry free etc ? where did you arrive back from btw ? cheers

It's a fair question. Some countries do and have exempted returning nationals and only apply quarantine to foreigners.

Granted a virus doesnt look at nationality. But laws are made by people and these people need votes. So rational decision making as we all know doesn't always apply.

Good to hear. Off to Bantry later this month having had to cancel Cambrils earlier this summer.

Apart from the weather, which is always going to be a lottery, I just hope the industry doesnt try to gouge us. Already paying the same amount in accomodation for one week as I was due to pay for 2 weeks in Spain.

Stupid self-important bint. Rules are for other people, etc.

If I go home, I've to isolate for 14 days, which is entirely proper. It's why I haven't seen anyone in my family since February. She can fück off.

I don't think she was trying to flaunt rules, just thought we'd have different ones for citizens.

Which is moronic line of thinking. If she'd actually engaged her brain and still thought she shouldn't need to isolate, then she's either genuinely thick or willfully stupid.

Not sure what the issue is here.

She wasn't sure of the rules, found out what they were, and realised she couldn't go so cancelled.

She's getting a bit of stick for actually being responsible :lol:

was wandering around with wife and kids one night after dinner ; went into pub and asked could we order desserts, coffee and a pint ; apologised and said he could do everything except pint as had to be a substantial meal regardless of €9 ;
What’s the logic here? Fair enough if he refused you completely but he let you in for everything except the long. Does he think the “substantial meal” protects against the virus or something? It’s just to stop people ordering a packet of crisps with 10 pints and calling it a meal. The idea is that you have table service and social distancing.

yeah, the logic was questionable and I tried to explain that we would be spending well over the €9 on desserts, coffee etc and I would literally be having one pint (just to be clear we had already eaten dinner in the below spot) I didn't want to be a dick and push him on it and just said fair enough....the funny part was that he's also the owner of the house we were renting (he didn't realise this)! as an aside I know you're a fan of the area, if you're heading down there and haven't been already I'd highly recommend the boathouse bistro and also the pizza place next door ; owned by the non Francis Brennan one of the Brennan bros ; great grub but gorgeous setting on Kenmare Bay.

Same in Westport.

Long lunches turned out to be the answer.

What was noticeable was that the Tourist Information Office was still closed and had been since the middle of March. So despite the private sector businesses being open, lots of tourists around the town, the Public Service Tourist Office couldn't be bothered to open.

The end result is she has made the decision not to come because she cant isolate. Who cares how she got there, she came to the most non offensive option possible. Yet peope still laying in. Its all a bit sfesque in style of criticism.

Royal Liver development on the Naas Road approved.

Some 1,100 apartments, 17,000 sq m. office plus commercial. Includes an 80m tower.

The money behind the developers is private, so a very good chance this will go ahead.

I got a test and a result within an hour.

I know that’s not good enough for suppress the curve zealots like Statto but it is something. In Iceland they now have a mandated second test within 5 days of arrival which seems fair enough. Again it’s not absolute, but it’s risk mitigation. 14 days is OTT with risk mitigation.

I think we’ll see it in Ireland.

That looks amazing.

Don't know the area but naas road would be fairly rough... This could get some nice regeneration going.
