Seismic change if the former!

Anyway, they found a body looking for that runner in the mountains. So sad all round. :((

A bit of a damp squib of a flounce. I'll believe it when I see it! He has other logins. But good luck with getting away from here Mullet if it really is a flounce!

And yeah, horrible story presuming it is her body. Fingers crossed just an accident although no reason to think otherwise.

Tobin is a prīck, always has been and I'm going right back to when he was in UCD.
Going by his FB page he seems to attract a lot of anti vaxer , scamdemic types( it’s a f**king car crash ) . Brother in law knew him in UCD too, he was an active FFer at the time

Seems to have been sorta confirmed in the reports although it was 99% likely alright. As is the likelihood of it being an accident.

Tragic.

Or take a fallback route. Or suck up your pride and call the emergency services if it is bad enough to make you nervous. Ideally you would have been trained to navigate in the hills in low to zero visibility but that's often not the case. I'd recommend doing the mountain skills courses, they're a good laugh and very, very useful.

Even taking a fallback route in open country in bad visual conditions is very dangerous.

No no. They only go with the EMA when it suits them. They unilaterally suspended AZ when the EMA specifically said not to. They are chancers

No this was confirmed by NPHET. There was a an ad in the IT about it which caused a backlash and Colm Henry had to come out and confirm that the ad was correct.THen Sineid Carroll the editor of the journal tried to get some guy fired on twitter and when she got called out on it she did a tweet thread which copied the closing arguement from a Time to Kill.
I don't really know what relevance that has to the Mayo coroner but I remember this and it was f**king bizarre.
It has to do with this
And there are a few more eminent medics than the coroner from Mayo who would claim otherwise. But you can just dismiss their opinions because they're all part of your global medical conspiracy. Just like you can dismiss mine because I'm part of the feckless public sector. Handy isn't it?
Specifically the bolded part. This is confirmed by NPHET but the media don't want to talk about it(until now). The Carroll story was just a bizarre incidence of the media trying to police viewpoints including the proposed boycott of the IT for publishing the ad. And it's the type of BS that NPHEt and the govt would have to deal with if they took a more "nuanced" approach. They were accused in the early days of the pandemic of supressing the true extent of the outbreak because people couldn't get tested and you could easily see the media hopping all over somethign like this. In any case I don't think it changes NPHETs approach to the pandemic or the advice it gives anyway. If they revise down the number after the fact who cares?

My dad is involved in the Irish Mountain Racing Association and I asked if any of his gang knew her. Seemingly not, they don't seem to have a presence that far south.
He did mention, however, that the route goes through some very cliffy spots. Can only guess that she fell. Poor thing.

they'll find whichever organisation says to adopt the crouch and hold position and follow them ; anything that avoids them putting on a big boy pants and making a decision themselves (what exactly are they responsible for ?)....through an abundance of caution......well, unless you're someone that had their AZ vaccination cancelled and are lot more likely to die of covid than a 1 in a million treatable blood clot

So my wife's niece is a trainee midwife, has been in and out of the hospital doing training for months. She was working with a senior colleague on a patient who just came back positive for Covid.

Hospital sent both of them to get tested, both have unfortunately come back as positive. The annoying thing is that one of them had already had the two jab mRNA vaccine, the other had one dose of the AZ, weeks ago and both still caught it. Both have mild symptoms.

Anyway, now the nieces family are all going to get tested as they're all in the same house (and also have started to show mild symptoms). My wife went for a 5 hour walk with them a few days ago (since we're now allowed to meet people outdoors), so if they come back positive, she meets the definition of a close contact and will also have to get tested. If she comes back positive then I need to get f*cking tested. As of this morning she is also showing mild symptoms.

Odds are the wife will be negative (walk was outdoors obviously, masks etc.) and this is just a cold or something, but it's just nuts how easily this thing spreads. And irritating as hell that its happening when the case numbers are as low as they are.

Isn't Spring very late this year? I reckon that this prolonged spell of cold dry weather has put growth back several weeks.

The garden is barely showing any signs of life & the blossom trees seem to have stopped in mid-development. Incoming farmer complaints about a poor year.

First couple of weeks of April were very cold. This allied to an early Easter which adds to the perception that Spring is late.

https://www.thejournal.ie/pregnant-wome ... 4-Apr2021/
THREE PREGNANT WOMEN with Covid-19 were being treated in the intensive care units of Irish hospitals last weekend, it has emerged.

Dr Peter McKenna, Clinical Director of the HSE’s Women and Infants Health Programme, revealed that the women were “very unwell” with the virus.

He reported the figure at last night’s media briefing by the National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET).

“I do know at the weekend there were three pregnant women who were in intensive care,” McKenna said.

“So whereas we have had a very good outcome in terms of mortality, that is not in any way way to minimise the impact it has had on those pregnant women that have been admitted to intensive care.

“Despite the fact the numbers are still falling, we still have three pregnant women who are unwell, very unwell.”

The one dose getting it isn't surprising. The other one getting it is more serious but I guess there has to be some people in the 5-10% group (much higher for over 70s) where it doesn't prevent infection. Let us know about the family, that's more concerning as even one shot is meant to reduce transmission massively. Although I'm not sure that refers to same household members or just less likely to transmit it in the community.
