I see Americas are encouraged to wear face masks when out and about while this side of the world we are told the opposite.

Which is the correct advice, are we told that because healthcare workers would have a big shortage of masks?

Only thing I have noticed is how empty the A&E departments are now. It clearly shows how many non emergency issues the A&E departments were having to deal with on a daily basis.

People were treating A&E like a GP office. Last time I took m to A&E with a heart condition we were sitting for over 8 hours. She had been seen but as non wards were available we had to wait in the reciotion Area.

I saw a large family of about 7 eating, drinking and laughing the whole time I was there. Still couldn't figure out why the emergency was or who was actually in to be treated.

In reality the sad thing is that in about 4 weeks after this has settled everything will go back to normal.

The A&Es in the island of Ireland was filled with hypochondriacs.

Trump wants the US "raring to go by Easter".

Deluded.
There is no way he can get reelected
No way? Every chance he will get re-elected. America is full of buffoons like Trump let's not forget.

The IT crowd is fantastic. The football one where they end up being get away drivers for an armed robbery. So so funny,
The thing about Arsenal is they always try to walk it in.

Been rewatching The IT Crowd recently.

Forgot how bloody good it was.
the work outing a real classic.

Have been hooked on re-runs of the chase, pointless, who wants to be a millionare and bullseye. Here's what you could have won never grows old.

Maybe the reprieve for Meath isn't quite there yet.
It's a fairly optimistic viewpoint from the GAA here in terms of the time lines but I can see the logic in holding off on scrapping it as long as possible and using the two remaining league games as warm ups for the championship (if it is played at all this year). Bit much to ask teams to go into what will inevitably be a changed and straight knock-out championship format not having played a competitive match in months.

Dublin one of the biggest losers if league is scrapped for the year. Not hard to know that journalist Conor McKeon is a Dub  ;D

Ladies league is now null and void, probably only a matter of time before the same happens with the NFL.

Boris was his usual unimpressive self...

He makes Donald look like a statesman

Dumb and dumber they are. I have no words good enough to call the people that voted them in.

UK on lockdown now.

From herd immunity just over a week ago  :-\
Here are the major points of his speech:

From tonight, people in Britain will be allowed to leave their homes for only “very limited purposes” - shopping for basic necessities; for one form of exercise a day; for any medical need; and to travel to and from work when “absolutely necessary”
People are warned not to meet friends or family members who they do not live with
Shopping is only permitted for essentials like food and medicine, and people are advised to do it “as little as you can”
Police have powers to enforce the rules, including through fines and dispersing gatherings
All shops selling non-essential goods, such as clothing and electronic stores, are ordered to close
Libraries, playgrounds, outdoor gyms and places of worship are to close
All gatherings of more than two people in public - excluding people you live with - are banned
All social events, including weddings and baptisms are banned
Funerals are not included in the new restrictions
Parks will remain open for exercise but gatherings will be dispersed
Restrictions “under constant review” and will be checked again in three weeks. They will be relaxed “if the evidence shows we are able to”

Diarmuid Connolly.

 ;)

Why the smiley?
Diarmuid was one of the finest players of his time and is (probably) still able to compete with the very best. Okay, he may be a wee bit temperamental at times but that doesn't take from his footballing genius or his ability to inspire those around him.

Cult hero basically means someone greatly admired by a relatively small audience  despite limited success.  Connolly would not fall under that category.
