    These shower of f*cks do what the like as usual, and get away with as usual.

    Where is Pavee Point this evening,

    This has being going on since yesterday and the first I heard of it was on the 9pm news.

    This 'where is Pavee Point' bollocks is getting tiresome.

    They are on the record calling out large gatherings of travellers for the disgraces that they are all throughout the pandemic.

    People here refuse to do their own f*cking research and just resort to the same, usual, lazy tropes because they've nothing else.

    Now just waiting for someone to chime in with 'it's culture, boss' and the other usual diatribes.

    This is a disgrace, but we all know exactly why this thread was started and it has nothing to do with COVID-19 restrictions.

    An absolute scandal while the majority of the law abiding citizens put up with lockdown.
    Pavee point should have questions to answer on this. Preferably on a live talk show where the spokesperson can be grilled about the complete lack of respect for the law the people they represent seem to have.

    There's little useful to be said here really. Its all been discussed many times before. Usually ends badly too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,847 ✭✭✭ tastyt


    Its not even a surprise anymore

    Let them do what they want but stick their discrimination bollocks up their hole the next time they cry wolf

    The Gardai are a disgrace. Wont do a thing about this but have a house party in Donegal and they want people ringing a hotline on neighbours

    Or harass old people in church.

    The guards are incompetent, the army should have arrived with a couple of vehicles equipped with large water pumps to scatter them.

    No thought whatsoever about all the guests who had to ask for a day off work.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,546 ✭✭✭ satguy


    The cops have a hotline for Donegal,, But can't spot a big marquee being erected in broad daylight.

    As for the people in the tent,, sure they do what they want, the always do.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 452 ✭✭ Sharpyshoot


    Maybe they had a strict 2 metre rule.

    This thread has everything to do Covid restrictions,

    its a disgrace and should be highlighted, people have buried loved ones with only 10 people allowed into a church, and these shower set up a marquee and invite 200 people to it.

    Because they are the only 'ethnic' group having weddings and funerals that blatantly break lockdown rules?

    Because they constantly flout the law without repercussion?

    Because pavee point constantly paint them as victims without addressing the trouble a large proportion of their group cause in communities and society in general?

    And also went into a church in Athlone and stopped the priest from saying mass.

    Is it sh*te. Not a peep out of you on any other high-profile breaking of restrictions that has been reported all year.

    Oh, except for a funeral in Carrick-on-Shannon.

    Just today, Pavee Point were calling for Travellers to be prioritised for Covid 19 Vaccines because the number of cases doubled in a week within their community.

    All the rights wanted, none of the responsibilities.

    I don't know. I seem to remember a large funeral in Belfast. Also a large funeral in Wexford.

    So no they are not the only ones yet when they do break rules we all get to rant about how terrible they all are.

    Maybe they are more likely to break rules on weddings. So what the panic is nearly over. The fake outrage at this stage is a bit much.

    How many people flew home over Christmas and broke the rules. That was ok though?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 33 ✭✭✭ TrangiaCoffee


    Well done to them. Getting on with life. Happy for the couple. I'm sure they are bothered by some racist whingers on here.

    Why isn't there a thread about South Side coffee queues or the throngs on Dun Laoighre pier? Class is why

    This “defending the indefensible” bollocks is getting tiresome. You’re gonna find yourself very much in the minority looking for support for your opinion. Wonder why that is.

    Of course it was, people were just 'getting on with life'.

    When it suits a narrative, that is.

    Coffee is essential service. Knocking back cans of warm Guinness isn’t.

    Exactly. Loads of people are breaking the rules. Where is all the crying about the drinking at the canal in Portobello.

    Show me where I defended anything to do with this particular event.

    Go on, I can wait.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,477 ✭✭✭ Car99


    Water canon is a good idea. Why did the gardai back down, why didnt they call in reinforcements? It makes a mockery of the law and the rest of us who abide by the law. No doubt the media will be quiet with no mention of the ethnicity of the group involved but tomorrow if one of the same ethnic group achieves something even if not extraordinary the media will be full of it.

    Yes, slash hook handles, minimum length 2 metres.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 452 ✭✭ Sharpyshoot


    Coffee is not essential.

    More essential than knocking back a dozen cans.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,803 ✭✭✭✭ Larbre34


    Coffee is not essential.

    Try talking to me of a morning without it and you'll soon learn how essential it is.




  • So they went to court and got an order to get it (the marquee) removed, and then just left them at it and dint enforce the order?

    Yes, the whingers on here are motivated by racism. If 200 settled people attended a wedding, there would be no thread.

    However, fúck anyone who feels the need to congregate in large groups when we've still got >300 new cases per day, whatever their ethnicity.
