    The next 2 weeks are crucial

    The GAA out on the piss in Clare recently, passing cups and roman holiday saturnalia of manly togetherness in villages up and down the country.
    Drinking hugging and slobbering all over each other like neanderthals and covid supposedly spread like bad news and these goons are allowed to be in togetherness, do the same thing over and over again...

    But yet your friend passes away and her grandchildren cannot say goodbye.

    Well no, that's not really the case. The GAA were never permitted to have gatherings like that. They broke the restrictions. Technically anyone can do what they did.

    I assume you're joking right?

    I was so afraid of further restrictions / disruption that I took my maternity leave really early so I could get ready for my third baby, due start of December. I’ve done nothing. I also planned to get ready for Christmas and my daughters birthday at the start of December because I won’t be able to when baby comes.

    My maternity leave started yesterday. I got some PJs for my hospital bag at the weekend but now I can’t get any more bits in Penney’s. My OH is waiting on a covid result so even if I wanted to run out and grab stuff today I can’t. I know how much worse off other people are right but I still keep crying. It’s just rubbish. I’m due two days after level 5 is due to end.

    I’m on mat leave as well. I had the baby in the summer. It’s been a relief not to have to deal with WFH & a stressful job but so different to my last mat leave, at times it’s been very lonely.

    That's just tiresome and worn out at this stage.

    But the gaa get a free pass, that is the difference.

    I played at club level myself, and I assure you we were a bunch of clowns when it came to celebrating.

    Although I'm off the hooch since 2003, my former drinking buds are still giggery goos and still lushes...

    Go figure

    I wish you well and I hope everything works out, I feel better now.

    My sons 20 and I can't even meet up with him.

    What a year this is, and I hope your husband gets a negative.
    You've a lot more going on than me, and I shouldn't feel so bad.

    You'll be fine.

    It's not really a free pass to be fair. Only the inter-county championship is going ahead, which involves only around 1,500 people.

    You limit funeral attendees to ten but allow hundreds of people mill around the school gates. Pubs, restaurants and hairdressers are gone to the wall yet thirty lads can jump all over each on the GAA pitch.

    That’s the killer right there. All the full-time mammies and mad bastards smoking at the gates giving out about about the government while Kayden, Jayden and Okayden snot and slobber all over each other. Might as well not lock anything down if that’s what’s happening. It’s redundant.

    Very little mention of why we didn't ramp up the health system, we've been told it takes 6 months to train an ICU nurse. Why was the time not used effectively? I just remember lots of politicking during the summer lull.

    Now we are expected to fast forward and say "There's nothing we could have done"
    Complete cop out morally. As bad as things are I'm glad I'm not a healthcare worker facing into this.

    MM is a lame duck and Leo is a ****stirrer. I heard amongst all of the leaking yesterday "simon coveney says Simon Coveney disagreed strongly with going to level 5" Maybe he was the leak all along. He's certainly benefit if the other two fall on their face.

    Anyway until the political crisis is sorted via an election we'll be on the merry go round of limbo / yoyo restrictions. No clear plan to extricate us from this public health crisis. Serious lack of imagination. Defeatist attitude.

    What he is saying makes no sense, doesn't even believe himself what he is saying.

    Why can't they go when the funeral is today?

    Because there are too many of them .She has a huge family


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,089 ✭✭✭BringBackMick


    6 weeks.....? Does it really need to be six weeks?

    I loved how MM, said 'just 6 weeks'

    That is a hell of a long time to live under such draconian measures.

    I meant a doctorate of medicine, which is harder to achieve than others. But yes actually even achieving that usually indicates shortcomings in other areas.


    They want us to be scruffy, poorly-kempt fatties so we'll stay away from each other and won't be spreading de virus.

    In all seriousness though, the restrictions are absolute rubbish.

    Pubs and restaurants, who have gone to enormous expense in some cases to facilitate outdoor dining, having to close. Many will not reopen this time.

    Shops are not known to be areas with a lot of spread.

    Oh and definitely make sure that not all children get to go to their parents funerals.

    But 30 schoolchildren could conceivably go on a school tour to any funeral they wanted.

    You can visit the grave though, it didnt mention there had to be a corpse in it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,108 ✭✭✭✭iamwhoiam


    We need the championship to get us through the 6 weeks. With everything else closed it's going to be an absolute bore.

    And we dont need to mourn our dead ? Seriously ?

    Having a doctorate doesn't mean that much sometimes. I know someone who is very intelligent and is yet a complete nut job with no sense of logic.

    She is thick.

    No, she is not thick. 'Thick' is calling other people thick simply because you don't agree with them.

    They've pinned everything on a somewhat normal Christmas so we might get the election when that inevitably fails.

    Just to be clear. It wasn't the GAA, it was individual members of clubs who choose to engage in after match parties, outside of activities associated with the matches themselves

    People seem to be furious this morning. I think 2 or 3 days ago people were expecting 4 (or 4.5) at most. I met a few people in the local village this morning and overreaction is the prevalent opinion.

    What are they doing in the Hyacinth House?

    Ciara comes off as somebody completely detached from reality. She takes the minority, shocker opinion and runs with it against any constructive criticism and everyone backs down because they're like "well I guess you're a doctor". It's nearly like a very tired comedy segment at this stage.

    "im visiting a grave". Could a guard actually follow you?

    Do the maths on that, and I openly admit that I was an absolute clown after a championship,as were my team mates, and seeing the antics recently they're still clowns.
    Speaking from experience, and a self proclaimed clown acting like a neanderthal after a win or loose.

    And back then it was during the 90s, the celebrations have ramped up a lot since then.

    It's going to be the most straightforward election in history here. It's normal during wartime or pandemics to have leaders who are just not up to it.

    Whoever knocks on the door next time around they'll get one question from me. "What's the plan Stan?"

    Any doublespeak horse ****e it's the virus's fault. They'll be sent packing. This is not working for the vast majority of people. A change is badly needed before we go bankrupt, the island that is.

    Why wouldn't it be? You only have to stay home if you are actually licking people for a living.

    Ciara is an attention seeker who mostly goes against the grain. For the sake of going against the grain etc.

    She's thick. Nothing you say will change my mind on that.

    I hate that expression.
    Just irritates me so much. Overused as you say but I think it's gotten used so much people don't even know the meaning of it..as every week "the next two weeks are crucial"

    I think it's something people regurgitate to make them sound more clever or something.
