    Don't be buying bags of cans or takeaway pints tomorrow.

    Don't be naughty boys and girls, cancel the BBQs and house parties.

    Don't enjoy the good weather.

    Hold firm. Stay inside. Put on your green jersey and say a few decades of the rosary to pass the time.

    10/10 for junior minister Donovan for stupid comment of the day.

    People are going to buy cans and meet up indoors because they're far less likely to be caught and fined for it than if they bought cans and sat a few feet apart in tomorrow's sunshine, which is a much, much lower-risk activity.

    Glynn said a few times "we don't want people meeting up indoors" while being the current head of the body making sure exactly that happens. It's a sitcom.

    Remember, the virus loves alcohol too.

    Those people are all very bold. The modeling shows that there will be 1000 cases for every can and takeaway pint consumed tomorrow.

    I’m off to the dog show.

    You can always get a drink there on St. Patrick’s Day.

    Thinking of going to protest tomorrow. Normally a peaceful fellow. Purely just for something to do. Join the crowd just start shouting.

    I actually think they have totally lost the plot.

    Now I won't be breaking any of restrictions but I will be going out to enjoy the beautiful weather in my local park or walk by sea well within my 5km.

    I will also enjoy an alcoholic beverage in evening with my husband, no parties here.

    I understand Gardai has to stop any protests, but if they start stopping people going out to enjoy their local amenities on their own as a family we as a nation have lost the plot.

    I'd love to go along myself but I'd be afraid what could happen during it. By coincidence I was in Dublin City centre for the last protest but by accident. There wee an awful lot of council estate types there on the day and you could just see what was going to unfold. Think it may happen again tomorrow so I won't go in.

    Good to see people taking nphets advice and not buying cans. SuperValu deal on 20 bottles is flying out the door.
