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.
That's the whole "end of history" idea.

Socialism gave western capitalist democracies an enemy and also gave the idiots a valuable lesson in why it doesn't work.

From an Irish perspective there's also an issue surrounding what wealth is and means. The auld lads on here can remember how backwards Ireland was in the 80s and 90s in a way which we simply cannot. Irish people moving to California, New York, Australia, etc, really were moving to the land of opportunity.

Now they discover that spending five years working as a barista in Melbourne wasn't a good idea and they're angry that they've wasted valuable portions of their lives.

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.
Sandymount Strand wasn't too bad earlier on.
a lot of people must have made it away for the weekend ; everything seemed quieter ; went for a swim Saturday and Monday at Seapoint and it was quieter both days than Thursday - the water has been quite dirty for a while now though which is a real shame ; actually bit of a whiff off of it

They also don't realise that there was a reason you were able to buy a new house in Knocklyon for ir£ 35k in the mid eighties, and that's because the country was in a chronic recession, with most young people having to move to London, Oz or the US (on a Morrisey - remember them ?) to get any work at all.

They'll only realise what they had once it's gone. If God help us , the left get in here and spend recklessly, taxing the shite out of the middle class, they will realise what they once had.

Like rfurlong has said previously, socialism is about spending other peoples money, and a lot of these youngsters are still spending their parents money. Once they start earning their own money, buy a property, and realise money accumulated isn't easy, they will change. Might be too late then.

https://www.independent.ie/life/travel/ ... 21318.html
A father has spoken of his pride in his 18-year-old son after he opted not to travel to Spain on a fully paid-for Leaving Cert holiday because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Benny McNulty's son, Jake (18), decided instead to take a break with six of his friends in Wexford.

However, it has been estimated that more than 2,000 Leaving Cert and first-year college students will travel overseas in the next three weeks - some to countries not even on Ireland's Green List - despite the Government advice that people should holiday at home this year.

"Of course, I am proud of him - he's got his head screwed on straight and decided to go on an Irish break with his friends," the Kildare father-of two said.

"I have to say that not all young people do have their heads screwed on straight."

It has been a challenging summer in the McNulty home with Jake having his Leaving Cert exams cancelled and his younger brother Conor (15) having his Junior Cert exams scrapped.

Jake now faces a nervous wait until September to learn his assessed grades from his Leaving Cert. He is hoping to study music at a Dublin college.

"Jake decided that if he couldn't have a normal holiday out in Spain, he wasn't going to go," Mr McNulty said. "Instead, he is heading with his friends to Curracloe in Wexford for a few days.

Learn more
"I do feel very sorry for young people over everything that has happened this year.

"They've had no debs, no Leaving Cert finishing parties, they have missed out on a load of concerts that they had booked tickets for and they were also hoping to go to Electric Picnic, which is off now as well."

Mr McNulty said that his son is unsure whether he will get a refund on the Spanish break, which was due to go ahead later this month.

"I think they are looking at the loss of the flights - if their plane takes off, I don't know if they will get a refund."

Jake now has a construction job until September - and his father said he was very proud of how Jake approached the entire lockdown.

The teenager's stance was guided by the strong advice relating to foreign travel from both the Government and healthcare chiefs.

Jake and his girlfriend also played their part by staying apart.

"He took it very seriously - his girlfriend and himself decided they should stay apart in the early part of the lockdown, though they chatted on their phones each day.

"He's a great lad - I'm very proud of him and his brother."
What a hero - this generation's patriot, well ahead of the curve as well in avoiding his girlfriend like the HSE suggested. :thumbup:

This is the same fella that was on TV itching his face and moving his mask after the Government introduced Phase I reopenings, telling everyone we were in for 10s of thousands of deaths because people could go to hardware stores again. Now we should go back to Phase II.

It's like the Indo were sent Simon Harris by the Government to do a piece to influence Irish mummys and daddys.

Surprise surprise, countries coming off the Green List.

In more pressing news the health service is trying to kill me instead of all the oul wans. Got a call off Lukes today and all that routine scopes cancelled until at least January. To put that in context I finished treatment in June 2019 and haven't been scoped yet. That's not clever as I should have been scoped 4 times by then.

Yes arbitrary, the EU set a guidance (based on the average in the EU on June 15th, when the virus was at a very low point) over the last 14 days. Ireland went for a far lower limit, the only reason being that it was what Ireland was clocking at the time. A tiny number of cases but hey ho, in the short term it allowed the Government to trumpet how "conservative" they were when the country was being hysterical over a flight from Dallas.

The issue is going forward and managing that. It is incredibly low and results in any form of cluster of cases knocking a country off the list.

Presume the same as a few months back as in no unnecessary people on the campus. Keep the numbers down for people in treatment. I get it as when I was being treated every big bang of chemo I got I ended up in hospital with infections or sepsis. Was a bit unlucky that way. Covid knocking about wouldn't have been great. It's just they should have come up with an alternative for the routine stuff by now I would have thought. I have no doubt they are risk led and those cancers with X recurrence are getting seen. Having said that my treatment wasn't a straight line so surprised I am not being monitored more closely. Look I feel good so the risk is low but people are definitely going to get caught here

How did you initially get diagnosed? Were you under the weather and would you recognize the symptoms if it came back?
I still thinks it's appalling that recent patients like yourself aren't getting the routine scans though.

You'd imagine they could use a separate facility for routine stuff like your check ups. I'm due another colonoscopy after having one last year but I'm in no rush!!!

The only problem with colonoscopy is moviprep or even worse kleanprep.

If they could sue over missed cervical screens how the feck could they defend no first year follow up on cancer patients? Seems slightly insane - like risk of covid is far, far lower.

They are based off a defined set of criteria that cover the rate of infection.

They are the exact opposite it being arbitrary.

Yeah, I’ve had the pleasure of both as I’ve had a few colonoscopies myself. Swallowing the kleanprep was far more unpleasant than the scope itself

Best of luck , hope everything turns out ok 👍
