    Money I suppose, Dublin makes alot of it. Dublin could subsidise every other county being locked down Id say.

    RTE website:
    Residents of counties Kildare, Offaly and Laois will not be permitted to travel outside of their counties except for in limited circumstances, including travel to and from work, under plans agreed by the Government.

    Restaurants, bars, cinemas and gyms will be closed for the localalised restrictions, which are due to come into effect from midnight tonight and remain in place for two weeks.

    But crèches will remain open and preparations for the re-opening of schools can continue.

    People living in Kildare, Offaly and Laois will be put under a partial lockdown for the next two weeks.
    Starting from midnight, those living in the three counties will have to restrict their movements and people elsewhere in the country will be banned from travelling to the counties.
    Cafes, restaurants and pubs operating as restaurants will have to close from tomorrow unless they are doing takeaway service or have outdoor dining.


    Cinemas, theatres, museums, galleries, bingo halls, casinos, betting shops and other indoor recreational and cultural outlets will also be closed. Gyms, leisure centres, swimming pools, exercise and dance studios, sports clubs and similar venues should close.

    The law abiding will adhere to it but plenty of criminals and general scumbags will ignore it making it a waste of time .

    Well as someone who lives in one of those counties and is 2 hours away tonight and for the rest of the weekend, I'll be breaking the restrictions anyway

    Partial lockdowns make a lot more sense than a full one.

    If I was a publican or small business owner in Leitrim which has had fewer than 100 cases through the entire pandemic I’d be absolutely raging that my area is being treated the same as a virus epicenter.

    But as long as 80/90% people act responsibly then it works. there is never going to be 100% adherence as there is always the 10% of assholes.

    Makes perfect sense. Probably the way of the future until a vaccine is found unfortunately.

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    Not adhering in what way? Will you dine in a closed restaurant or swim in a closed pool?

    Well thats not true, 48% of total cases for the entire pandemic were in Dublin, of the current active cases its nowhere near that percentage.

    Very surprised to read that some meat factory employees are in direct provision. If they are thus employed, why are they not on working visas and living self sustained in comunity. Are they in reciept of a full wage? Is this a source of cheap compliant labour, subsidised by irish state. Genuine questions...if someone can enlighten me.

    I refer you to my earlier post regarding the 10% who are assholes :-)


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,502 ✭✭✭✭ Muahahaha


    It seems it all goes back to the meat processing plants. One of them had 80 employees out of 240 tested positive and they dont want to spread that into the community.

    I believe people in DP were given the right to work last year.

    Well yes..... As is every other country in the world.

    How do people still think they are making a valid observation and criticism when they say "they are making it up as they go"?

    Best wishes to all in those counties

    Absolute shocking decision. GAA has been back guts of a month a few if any cases. Yet stop playing. Joke shop country. NPHET and govt are a disgrace.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,640 ✭✭✭✭ meeeeh


    If those are all limitations I think we will be OK. What about beauticians and hairdressers? I have both booked in next two weeks?


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,592 ✭✭✭✭ Mantis Toboggan


    Crazy that everyone in the 3 counties has to suffer because a group of refugees can't social distance.

    Can't see this being observed by many. North Kildare is a suburb of Dublin now anyway.

    That didn't take long. A look at the thread on masks highlights the noisy minority who don't want to participate with guidelines like everyone else.

    No, it's not fun nor enjoyable. It is, however, beneficial. Get over yourselves.
