Apologies if it's been covered in the main thread, but I've been avoiding that for my own sanity.
What's the procedure regarding wakes and funerals during the pandemic?
We have a family member who isn't too well (not virus related), and with other vulnerable people in the extended family, we want to be prepared for what might happen.
As hard as it would be for a vulnerable family member not to be able to attend a relatives wake/funeral, we have to be sensible too. And some people might go anyway even if it jeopardises their health or life.
Yer man Carvill wrote a piece this week, and it got me thinking.
We live in a time where there has never been more awareness programs in schools, sports clubs, on TV etc. People are more educated about the dangers of drugs, yet there seems to be more and more people gripped by drugs problems.
I'd say most towns and villages in the country are touched in some way. It's frightening.
What can be done? And why are drugs so prevalent all around the country?
Apparently Jonny Cooper was the 21st player sent off in an AI football final.
I'm trying to figure out the other 20.
And who was the first sent off? It wasn't Kevin Moran again, was it?
I can only think of:
Donal Vaughan John Small Liam McHale Colm Coyle Charlie Redmond (eventually) Diarmuid Marsden (unfairly, of course) Tony Davis Meath 2001, Nigel Nestor, was it? Cork 1988, Colm O'Neill? (Punched Mick Lyons. Brave man!)
