So for the 26 is looks like:

Tuesday 1 December - everything open apart from pubs and restaurants
Monday 7 December - restaurants and gastropubs allowed open
Household gatherings will only be permitted from 18 December to 3 January but certain restrictions (i.e. there'll be a max number)

So it looks like "wet" pubs won't be allowed open at all!
And the term "gastropubs" has only come into this conversation in recent days. I haven't seen it confirmed but it appears "gastropub" may mean a chef has to be on site, so no bringing grub in from the chipper next door, etc.

This seems really harsh on publicans.

I can understand the need for precaution, especially when it comes to alcohol, but I'd also let's treat everyone like adults and ask them to be responsible.

I haven't seen any talk of an alcohol curfew in Ireland, but I think early closing would help reduce infractions. I would be strongly in favour of opening pubs in a controlled environment, table service only, max of 6 (or even 4) per table, masks to be worn when you get up from the table, distances between tables, sanitisers available, last orders 10pm.

I think the argument that people will go to house parties when they leave the pub is very weak. The vast majority of people have no interest in house parties in the current climate, and those that do will be more likely to attend parties if the pubs are closed.

Whats the story with hotels?

Reopens December 4th

Bottom in the 7 day European table now.




Well done ROI . Great leadership from government

I'd give the most credit to the people, alot of sacrifices made and at a time when most were already covid fatigued.

Aye but you need proper direction and organisation, don't be disingenuous

Making me sick reading this lads. Grow a set ffs. Boys knowing brands and all

Yup. And I never understood these big gestures bollix. Spending stupid amounts of money on things like a seven and a half month anniversary or the dogs birthday. Mental.

Boys must be desparate for a bit or something. I just scoot up the town Xmas Eve, she bes pissed off until about lunch time on Xmas day but after 2 baileys apparently I'm a "big ride" again..Happily married years now

I got a test booked really quickly for last Wednesday and the place was dead. The rest of had to test on Friday and the place was bunged. (Carryduff). Dunno what that says mind you lol.

Less than 2k tests seems low.

What a doctor said to me was that it wasnít really important what numbers were but hospital turnover and they are never really dropping in numbers - itís constant. Hopefully in weeks to come that will change.

Wonder why they don't report daily hospital admissions as that would mean more than how many people have tested positive.

Maybe they do but it's never the headline figure you'd hear on the news.

Might be in dashboard but was never reported on news, usually new cases and deaths

Wonder why there has been a drop in testing? Is it because people not getting symptoms, so not testing as many, or people not testing because it would affect their income, should they be positive? 

Or, hopefully we have turned a corner? Well at least for a week, but after the shopping spree has Infected a few!

Numbers dropped dramatically up our way

Limerick lost 3 championship games in 2019

Hardly makes them the best team of 2019

They look to be a different proposition this year and winning the provincial crown gives them and KK an advantage this year which in other years would be a hindrance.

My money is on a Waterford v KK semi-final with Waterford coming out on top on a dry sod in Croke Park.

The other is Galway v Limerick and as TJ Ryan says, that one is like a deaf dog, hard to call but the eventual AI winner comes out of it.


Down in the CR final this weekend, after beating Offaly, they'll be hot favourites and that has never been something a Down team has been used to.

The Joe Mcdonagh final must be the following week, Antrim v either Kerry or Carlow with both duking it out for the chance to play in the final.

Great semi-final win but like Cork footballers couldn't replicate it in the final.

Kildare were the better team and were able to physically put the blockers on the Down forwards who need a bit of space to use the bit of extra pace they had. Kildare had their homework done on Down and their halfback line stayed very deep denying the inside forward line any room, don't think the Kildare keeper had a save to make.

Disappointing end to a good year for the hurlers.

Was a good game , I feel deflated as a Derry hurling fan atm, our board isnt backing us at all,

I have a friend who firmly believes that the lockdowns are a complete over-reaction.
1) They claim that covid wards in some hospitals are practically empty.
2) They claim that lockdown and cancellation of hospital services has killed people for reasons other than covid.
3) They claim that flu kills just as many as covid
4) They claim that the death stats are severely skewed because many people have died in hospital from non-covid but get counted as covid

Can anyone help me counteract these arguments?

1-Not empty but not full
2-Absolutely true
3-Not sure
4-True

Scenes in Belfast this weekend getting a bit of airtime. Can only imagine what it will be like mid December when everything re opens....

Im sort of lost on what people want at this stage?

Foster said medical advice had changed. What has changed?? Surely medical advice has been the same for a long time and this is just a crock of shit?

She should publish the before and after medical advice then.

Itís possible that she got a call from Whitehall and told to wise up.

Probably, MON got her call to change her mind from Mary Lou on the Sunday too

Wasn't to be for the hurlers, 3 goals conceded were a killer in a closely fought match. Down just couldn't get level in 2nd half, kildare always managed to stay a couple of points ahead. Tough defeat but still a very good year.

Was a good game , but Kildare physically much stronger. I enjoyed game but pity Down didn't get win
