    Great to see all the positive news, after a tough few days of news about the AstraZeneca and J&J vaccines. Looking forward to a professional haircut in a few weeks :)

    Great data in this infographic from the DOH. 0 nursing home outbreaks, very low cases in healthcare workers and over 80s. Lowest in hospital in over 6 months.

    Very positive for the continued reopening in early May.

    Let's be clear on this, SF, Labour and the SDs were pooh-poohing concerns raised by FG about mandatory hotel quarantine being in breach of EU law (as was I raising them). Now we see that the EU Commission is investigating Ireland for this.

    I hope the Government learns the lesson not to listen to populist nonsense from the opposition. They were weak to do so on this issue. We also have constitutional challenges weaving their way through the courts.

    This was all predictable and predicted by me. The only thing is at least the government had the right intention, the opposition following the mob are beneath contempt.

    And how pointless it will be when some idiot flies into Belfast and travels South bringing a new variant with him.

    The random nature of the selection of countries is why the Commission complained, not the scheme itself!
    Just put them all on the list

    The bold boys made us do it won't wash
    Besides a govt introducing things based on what the opposition say, makes them not only a spineless govt, but populous govt too.

    Well yes, I am criticising them for listening to the populist mob-following opposition. Hopefully they learn their lesson.

    Nonsense. NPHET called for it in May 2020. Nearly a year ago. They had a year to get the legal and process and planning right and they failed as per usual. I think they are more worried about optics than governance. It's just more chaos.

    If it turns out to be unconstitutional or against EU law, are you saying they should have had a referendum or an Irexit?

    If my auntie had balls she would be my uncle.

    The key word in my sentence is 'planning'. When making plans you normally look at the risks, the possible pitfalls, the potential blockers. If legality was a risk, they had nearly a year to figure it out. They didn't and they will look extremely foolish if they have to scrap it. Extremely foolish. Extremely incompetent.

    How do you plan for something that might be unconstitutional or against EU law?

    You can't just figure that out.

    What are you waffling about? If they can figure out if it's legally sound now, they could have figured it out well before now i.e. during the concept/planning phase. You're not making any sense. This is basic stuff. You ask the relevant legal experts. Ah stop, if there is a climbdown on MHQ, they will never live it down.

    I know, they will blame the variants for making it illegal all of a sudden.

    The realities are the realities. We have done an excellent job so far in this pandemic. Income supports are amongst the highest in Europe (think Finland might be higher?), death rates are well below average; our vaccine rollout is slightly ahead of the EU average, and we all have to deal with supply issues; our economy was the only one to post a growth despite lockdown.

    The mandatory quarantine was a serious error though, and we have to look at FF populism for making that happen. Simon Coveney came out strongly against it, and we really all should listen to what that chap has to say about things.

    We have a border with NI, and I'm sure we have to deal with the realities that we won't be putting every arrival over the border into the Four Seasons in Monaghan Town.

    The AG did warn the Irish Government on this, warnings dismissed by many posters here.

    They have had over a year to plan this but as usual, MHQ is put together at the last minute. It's like they don't give a ****e so that it will fail and they will then say I told you that it would not work.

    Another bank getting ready to depart Ireland.
    KBC, "the bank of you" is off apoarently.
    Banking sector becoming a bit chaotic.

    As the saying goes 'fail to Plan, plan to fail'. Planning seems to be a problem for this government and the one before it. Lockdowns are an easy answer for them planning to come out of them and coming up with processes and procedures seems to be beyond their and the civil service capabilities.

    Can you point to a country where lockdowns, haven't been the answer?
