Be interesting to hear an update on how many people have been contacted through the app.

He told RTÉ the reopening of pubs was not a simple issue and questioned if we should have opened all restaurants.

Dr Lambert said the wrong message was being sent at the moment in saying that "if we open up the pubs then the schools won't be able to open".

He pointed to Denmark as a model for reopening schools, but added that they tackled the virus much better at a local community level.
Why didn’t you quote the stuff that he said that disagrees with your viewpoint?

Except he hasn’t?

I questioned months ago the logic of larger pubs not being able to reopen whilst smaller restaurants could.

I don’t have a problem with someone having a differing view on reopening pubs. I disagree with your view on it but at least you own up and say publicans and workers should be given certainty on it rather than just calling them all pricks.

A long term sustainable strategy is needed.

“Own up” what the fudge? I feel sick for them. That’s why I said the government should pay them to stay closed. Their whole business model is completely incompatible with a viral pandemic. A few venues can adapt to socially distanced table service but most cannot. That’s it, it doesn’t work until we get rapid testing or a vaccine. There is no equivalence to schools. Schools are not optional. They simply have to reopen so we have to figure out how it can be done. Linking schools to pubs is frankly bizarre.

“Own up”

Yes, own up.

If you don’t think pubs should be reopened in a control manner, then that’s fine, but own it. You are saying it, the Government are not.

At the moment we are keeping people and lives on a leash.

Once we get to the point of admitting this, we might have a debate on the other ancillary costs of keeping these premises closed.

Got the DART to Howth today.

Teenagers particulary the black teenagers just dont wear masks. Saw it on the train to Howth and the train back to Tara.

Seems to be a fairly big community of black people in Donaghmede and Bayside.

Busy out there today? I was out there on Friday morning and it was relatively quiet until lunchtime. Quite a few people doing the various Howth Head walks though.
Killiney Hill was very busy earlier.

The village was busy. The upper coastal walk was quiet.

I was up in Monghan and Armagh yesterday.

In Monaghan most wore masks in the shops. In Armagh nobody was. It was pretty shocking

Interestingly a few companies are developing Covid rapid tests - Lets Get Checked and DNA Nudge to name just two - obviously that would be transformative and massively lucrative. The model they’re all going for is a screening test followed by a more stringent confirmation diagnostic test. I wonder has anyone informed them that the Irish Supreme Court has redefined the concept of medical screening such that no negative screening test result can be given in the absence of “absolute confidence” that the test contains no abnormalities. Luckily in this case screening won’t require any subjective analysis by highly qualified personnel - the lawyers would have another bonanza on their hands.

Apparently we are all to go on the interweb and start jacking off to grotty Russian vids of oul wans but if we do have a ride the HSE have said we should
The new information campaign from the HSE and the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU) also said people should be washing their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before and after sex.
I can say with some confidence that is not going to happen. Nobody is putting the gun back in the holster so they can wash their hands. Nobody

At the start of all this they were saying phones were a source of all sorts of disease. Little did we know they meant syphilis

Seán Quinn’s five children have demanded shares in his former businesses, according to the Sunday Independent. It reports that the children have issued a legal threat to directors at Quinn Business Retention Company, including Kevin Lunney and former Quinn chief executive Liam McCaffrey. The company has referred the legal demand to An Garda, the paper reports.

Ireland has 'greatest' onshore wind share
Ireland generates a greater proportion of its electricity from onshore wind than any other country in the world, a new report shows.

The annual Renewables Global Status Report from think tank REN 21 says Ireland is second only to Denmark in the share of electricity provided by wind energy.

Denmark’s supply is boosted by its large offshore wind sector, leaving Ireland with a greater onshore electricity share.
Last year Denmark generated an estimated 47% of its electricity demand, with Ireland generating 32.5 %.

Ireland is also one of only four countries in the world – the others are Denmark, Germany and Uruguay – which met more than 30 per cent of demand last year from variable renewable electricity like wind or solar power.
Surprising how little coverage this received.

I think there's a broader problem here where a lot of young people don't understand Irish politics.

There were articles in the run up to the same-sex marriage and abortion referendums suggesting that wealthy Irish conservatives in Dublin 4, etc, would vote against it.

That's applying American and British logic to Irish politics. It was always the posh people who were liberal here and the poor people who weren't. A lot of (predominantly younger) people are trying to force Irish politics to fit foreign narratives.

Yes that’s a very good point on people transplanting narratives from abroad into our politics. Remember that Green councillor who was tweeting about how indigenous lives mattered :lol:

I'm increasingly sure it has almost nothing to do with politics.

The lives of Irish people (speaking generally) are boringly prosperous. All the great battles (aside from reunification) have been won. Young people are seeing battles that they consider righteous elsewhere and they want to inject some of that drama into their lives. The problem is that they either don't exist here or exist to a minuscule level.

So they have to be created. It's why many still think its edgy to kick the church which is now an organisation of pensioners that does more good than all the SJW combined and is afraid of its shite to express an opinion.
