Come to Salthill. Where the rules don't apply nor are enforced.
Even queue for a coffee whilst you flaunt your civic duties.
Salthill, Galway - where viruses don't catch.
To enforce there must be a deterrent, I wonder if ‘small’ numbers of the Army cannot be used to augment the Gardai in certain areas where the Gardai are a bit thinner on the ground. Maybe it’s to keep the Army as a sterile last line of defense perhaps ? If army personnel, say a few hundred were given to the Gardai for say a three month secondment ?
I’m reading that there are about 7,300 full time army personnel and 1600 active reservists... just under 9,000 in total. A couple of hundred in each province could take the pressure off the Gardai, and indeed the pressure ON the fûckwits hanging around in groups and disregarding the regs.
