    In his most outspoken attack on NPHET yet O'Leary has gone to town on Dr Tony Holohan and his crew:

    Mr O’Leary said there “aren’t lots of young people getting sick and going to hospital” and said: “Part of this is due to Nphet miscommunication, their daily press conference trying to terrify the population. The reality is the UK will have everyone over 50 vaccinated by March, Ireland needs to catch up, hopefully by the end of June.

    “Nphet, and the Chief Medical Officer [Dr Tony Holohan] if he was doing his job properly, should be holding a daily press conference announcing how many people have been vaccinated, not issuing scare stories of numbers of people in hospital. He’s the CMO, he should be dealing with the vaccine as vaccination is the way out of this Covid crisis, not these failed lockdowns,” Mr O’Leary continued."

    But it's young people who pass it on that is the issue. And nothing about the hospitals being full and the people who are dying everyday. O' Leary couldn't give a f**k about the elderly or the vulnerable in our society and I'll make sure I'll avoid using his company from now on.

    In fairness hospitals are always full this time of year, they are no different this season.

    I don't often agree with Michael O'Leary but he's bang on the money here

    Our country is on its knees.
    Our economy is destroyed.
    We face mass jobs losses mass poverty mass homelessness and ruin.
    Do you want the whole country boarded up for good?
    For the sake of a virus with a 99.97% survival rate.

    O'Leary is great at running a no frills airline and getting maximum publicity when he needs it, I pay him no heed whatsoever.

    So this winter isn’t any different to last winter?

    Have you not noticed anything at all different about this winter compared to other years?


    Is it possible that our full hospitals would be slightly worse off if there were no restrictions in place?

    Does this still actually need to be spelled out to people

    And how will young people passing the virus on to elderly people be a problem if the elderly people are vaccinated? Think about it? I'm sure you will fly on a Ryanair flight again as they are the 9/10 times cheaper than any other airline.

    I'll take Mr O'Leary's advice about dealing with a pandemic as seriously as I would take Tony Holohan's views on running an airline.

    The country is not on its knees. He's just upset its cost Ryanair €1bn. Boo boo, they have 3 more billion in the bank.

    They wear masks gloves space helmets rub alcohol on their hands and do whatever Tony says without question. They scream at people who pass them in the street.

    You should have put this definition in your first post. It would have made it far easier to dismiss your opinion

    Ah come on now...if Houlihan was running the airline there's a good chance you wouldn't even land in the city you thought you were headed to....

    What's wrong with wearing masks and using alcohol gel in a pandemic? Genuine question.

    We are billions in debt tax returns have cratered public services public pay and PUP are only kept going because of enormous borrowings which will bankrupt the country for generations.
    We face a run on the banks massive defaults home repossesions joblessness evictions and civil strife.
    Tents will overflow the streets and soup kitchens will be keeping people alive.
    That's how bad things are going to get and soon unless we open up NOW!

    Hyperbole much? Yes, the government has borrowed enormously, the difference this time though is that it's practically free money.

    The doomsday scenario you paint is as likely to happen as a zombie apocalypse.

    Get a grip.

    What qualifications does Tony Holohan have in the area of immunology, epidemiology or infectious diseases?

    I agree with him on holding press conferences maybe not daily but weekly on vaccination numbers

    He is just trying to get attention away from there losses to other things. Attack the big bad (but forgetting the government and all other parties agree with what NPHET say) and get footfall from him. O'Leary is not doing it to be liked he is doing to get profits. 2 bad other countries will not let his customers in atm

    What pandemic? It's a severe flu season. Masks do not work. Social distancing does not work. Lockdowns do not work. Hand santizer does not work.

    Reality begs to differ.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,003 ✭✭✭ The_Dazzler


    What qualifications does Tony Holohan have in the area of immunology, epidemiology or infectious diseases?

    He's specialised in public health medicine.

    He is right about the UK getting back to normal before the rest of Europe, although they deserve to, their population and health service have been through hell.

    He has a point. Too much emphasis put on NPHET and this business of leaking government advice has been a shambles.

    Anyone can write letters to the country telling everyone to hide under the bed and nail a black cross to the front door...... All they are doing is covering their ass.

    They are fond of scaremongering also, particularly in tandem with RTE and the push to misrepresent that the virus is overtly dangerous to the under 60's - not fair - at least be frank and honest and let the people make up their own minds.

    In Germany they are only innoculating the under 65's. This got buried and misrepresented in Irish media. It got tied in with the propaganda on the Astra Zeneca shambles.... at least give us the truth and stop patronising everyone.

They only serve to destroy the economy society and the mental health of our people who are paralyzed by fear social isolation and despair. We need to open up immediately to save our country from total ruin.

    Oh great. A COVID denier.

    Not sure about that! Focus has been on healthcare workers and the elderly??

    I spoke with friends in Germany yesterday. Last week we were being told that the German quality control had judged the vaccine not as effective on the over 65's.

    I was told by a German yesterday that they are implementing a vaccination strategy of only using Astra Zeneca on under 65's as a result. For 2 reasons. The first being that the under 65's need to get back to work. The 2nd being that their own medical and pharma agency judged the vaccine to not working cohesively with over 65's.

    Why are we not being told this?

    You need to remember that the population of this country is largely ignorant, stupid and selfish at a fundamental level. If the messaging isn't clear that the virus is dangerous to themselves personally, the population will carry on to suit itself, harming the vulnerable in the process.

    Our then thick population will then turn around and blame government for not doing anything to protect these people.

    I think thats unfair, ye would get there.

    But the updates from the captain as you fly would contain anecdotes about the crime rate of the city you're landing in, the weather (only if its crap), the evils of alcohol and to please report any fellow passengers who dont have their seatbelts fastened when the light is on and how

    So open up the country and cancel any guidelines and see what happens. I supposed there are just old people clogging up our who are dying they were going to die anyway

    The High King of Ireland annoyed that his business is losing a bit of money. Boo hoo

    We've 10s of people dying every day from this Michael and hundreds of previously young healthy people unable to walk halfway down the road without being severely fatigued, zip it.
