  • The Arena gym is closing until at least the 29th March, Roundy's, Ashe Hotel, the Blasket bar, Ugly Mug/The Glasshouse...

    That's all I've heard of this evening. Its very worrying. I know its very important for everything to keep this virus as contained as possible, but the long term affects are not good. Sorry to depress people :(




  • Yep ..I have a feeling I'll be looking for a new job quite soon the way things are going ...

    I really hope it doesn't come to that :(

    I believe it's quite likely tbh, shall see next week




  • I decided to delete the post about the facebook post chamber alliance have posted. It wasn't a good idea for them to post it, so I don't want to add to the stress and panic by sharing it too. Its not going to help.

    Ah yeah, just bury everyone else's head in the sand there because you don't agree with the Chamber Alliance.

  • More that it's preferable to wait for the Government to make any such announcement, rather than provoke another round of bulk-buying.

    They've since changed the post to say it's about supports available to businesses, poor effort by them




  • Not all of the town is panicking yet , its just scaremongering by them , the show must go on




  • Thankfully someone had the cop on to edit the post and say it was about business supports. A lot of people were not impressed with the initial post which was badly worded and caused a bit of a panic!
    I wonder what supports will be in place for businesses?

    Hennessy's bar is the latest pub to close. Apart from the Blasket I don't know if any other bars have made the decision yet.?

    did you see their post?? They put up a post which panicked a lot of people by its initial wording, which has now been edited to clarify what it was about (business supports). Nothing to do with me not agreeing with the Chamber alliance! I was trying not to cause further panic!!

    im guessing it has to do with gatherings of over 100 people that they are closing , not many pubs in town can hold that many so a few will probably stay open

    Ehh, yes, I saw the post.

    This is a discussion forum, remember?

  • To be fair, all available government resources must be channeled towards funding the health services. End of.

    If businesses go to the wall, then unfortunately so be it. Once this crisis is over, the likelihood is that the economy will rebound pretty quickly.

    Well said Quackster, this is not a time for business people to adopt a victim mentality.

    Will it's pretty much an economic catastrophe so they really don't have a choice. The government won't have the resources to bail anyone out.

    We do have a choice, and we should have enough of a social conscience not to burden other people with a sense of entitlement to profit.

  • A suspected drunk driver caused a crash up near McDonalds earlier today. They apparently then drove away from the scene and managed to crash further down the road, near the hospital! Gardaí arrested them.
    I think the car they crashed into had to have the occupants cut out of the car. Hopefully no one seriously injured.
