    I have the same question. I am guessing not, seeing as it is in your home. Imd due to get wooden floors installed, and going to call them today to see if they can still do it. But not hopeful

    Not an expert but I think so, would probably be covered under point c.

    Construction and development
    5. The following services relating to construction and development:

    (a) construction or development work and the provision of support services relating to construction and development work;

    (b) the repair, maintenance and construction of road, rail and utility infrastructure;

    (c) the supply and delivery of maintenance and repair services to businesses and places of residence (including electrical, gas, plumbing, glazing and roofing services).

    We're due to get our windows and doors replaced tomorrow and Thursday, and I've called them twice to confirm they're still ok to go ahead and they have said yes as it falls under construction. They're a large well known company, not some fly by night operation, so they'd have a lot to lose if they're wrong.

    They should have allowed walk-ins. Going through a GP for an appointment puts some people off, I'd imagine.

    The referral by GP is a nice little source of revenue for the GPs. They don’t have to actually see anyone. My brother had a few sniffles last weekend and rang his GP. He described his symptoms and the the GP just transferred the call to his secretary to get his details. He was talking to the GP for less than a minute. He is still waiting for his test.
    The GPs are going to be raking it in as the numbers increase.

    The government lost the people a long time ago.

    It wasn’t the golf gate saga.
    It wasn’t the contradictions in the guidelines.


    For me it was when they left Gemma o Doherty and all of her gemmaroids off Scott free with their nonsense at the courthouse.

    If they were not willing to take action against those freeloading fools then don’t take action against everyday normal taxpayers.

    Switch on RTE Radio - Everything is fine, this isn't as bad as l what you think, the economy will sustain it. Followed by government advertisements in soft voices tell us we are all in it together.

    Switch on Newstalk - This is all your own fault. We need these restrictions. The "we will be grand attitude" has to change. Followed by Government ads with soft voices telling us we are all in this together.

    Agree or disagree with it but pointless hyperbole makes the argument look stupid. This is not North Korea or USSR stuff. Not by a long way.

    Please save me the faux concern.

    No one is buying it.

    Trying to peddle the Narrative that the sole motivation of CMO is to save his terminally ill wife is at best remedial, but in reality just a bat shít conspiracy theory.

    Big joke indeed.

    Probably legally actionable nonsense too. The bould niallo is lucky the CMO has so much else on his plate.

    Or just maybe they are calling out the claims from politicians from just a couple of days ago.

    Like with their five levels that they deviated from almost immediately.

    the five levels was trademark FF glossy PR - they are the kingpins of meaningless publications that end up nowhere

    but as for 'saving christmas' - the reason it was used was because there's an audience for such puerile tripe
