    Shut Dublin airport train stations too.
    Dublin for Dubliners.

    They dont seem keen to repeat Kildare type restrictions in Dublin.
    But I would not expect pubs to open on 21st.

    Dublin will "very likely" be locked down on Friday according to the Irish Post.

    What % of cases per 100,000 caused Kildare etc to be locked down?

    Lockdown sucks but I don't think there is a good alternative for a large city until there is a vaccine, for now.

    Not sure that's relevant. If it takes off in Dublin its likely to spread rapidly to other counties as people travel home from work or for the weekend.

    I think we can safely say pubs won't open in Dublin on 21st and universities in Dublin will be online only. That was probably going to be the case anyways.

    No chance of an April style lockdown, maybe tougher limits in gatherings though.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    Keep Dubs (actual and residents from elsewhere) in Dublin should be the approach with obviously no one else actually going up there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,292 ✭✭✭ LeBash


    Some UCD (I think) professor was on newstalk and said the majority of the new cases were in West Dublin and that we should lock down that area.

    Hopefully if anymore lockdowns are called its for the right reason and an unemotional decision.

    Some will have the privelage to travel West and put their feet up in their holiday homes...

    The whole country will be locked down before Dublin does. Think about it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,351 ✭✭✭✭ gimli2112


    do we have the same problem as the UK with all the young people spreading it?

    they should make an exception for golf tournaments and dinners


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,357 ✭✭✭ jacdaniel2014


    The cases in Dublin are mainly due to house gatherings.

    Locking down will only amplify the problem.

    Whether we like it or not, people want to socialise with normality. The only place you can really do that now is at home.

    Closing businesses will solve nothing.

    Lockdown Dublin. Have hordes of them launch co-ordinated breakouts to go shopping in Kildare village or holiday in kerry. Would be much smarter to spread stories in the media of a new super virus riddling all us culchies

    No more lockdowns.

    The virus is here. And will be here after another lockdown.

    It’s time to live with it and get on with our lives.

    Can’t keep going for a lockdown all the time, there are bigger things at risk now like our economy, people’s well-being, education etc

    Our government aren’t competent, information from them has been littered with grey areas and ambiguity.

    They’ve already overacted using the virus for an excuse to take more control on us than they need to, with idiotic contradictory measures.

    Enough is enough. We’ll wear masks and do the best we can all of us. But no more being locked up. I honestly don’t think people will fully comply this time if it did come to it, apart from the people who watch nothing but the news and think our leaders are “great”.

    Time to end this talk of more lockdown/restrictions. Allow the pubs to open not on the 21st September but tommorrow. Where are they coming out wit the 21st September from will the virus be less deadly after that date? A Dublin lockdown is a riddiculous idea.

    It is to end all restrictions not when cases come down or there is a vaccine but in a matter of days and weeks at the most and introduce measures to protect the vulnerable as it is clear the virus is not serious for healthy people. But no instead the government want more restrictions despite the fact no one is dying and the virus is not as deadly as once thought.

    We will need a wall, and Dublin will pay for it.

    Dublin will only be locked down again when the health service is at the point of total collapse

    That's how important we are

    Never forget that

    He was wrong though, it's Dublin South East isn't it.

    Over a third of Covid cases in Dublin is young people under the age of 25. I day lock down some of Dublin but not all of it. So leave South Dublin they seem to be good but the Dublin North west and Dublin South East need to be locked down. They have a high number of cases.

    Its either a lockdown in Dublin or it runs completely out of control there. Take your pick. Nothing to do with importance.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,201 ✭✭✭ Man with broke phone


    Build the hospital beds, buy the respirators, multiply testing, cant lockdown again. The kids arnt scared of it anymore. Lock grannies and grandads down and people with a bmi of above obese and all the other dangerous cases.

    Its people on the social or in school want the lockdown because there will be no jobs to go to after another one.

    I hope the lockdown will be televised.

    It is to give Pubs time to restock and get workers back. They can't just open like that without any stock to sell. They have made a loss doing it 3 times already. So maybe they will be lucky the 4th time.

    Does it matter if it runs out of control as it is clear it is not a very deadly virus
