UK posting 563 deaths in the last 24 hours, 30 in Norn Iron.

Shits getting real

that reads 30 deaths here in the last 24 hours which isn't the case.

is this just lazy journalism or is there something else going on? - https://twitter.com/360_stan/status/1244575113003044865

the #emptyhospitals is also interesting on twitter. is it the calm before the storm?

doesn't escape the fact that lots of people have lost their jobs and the world economy is in the shitter.

Wonder if Creagh Concrete would accept 90% of what I owe them  ;)

So how do you claim a 3 month mortgage holiday?

Does it also apply to BTL mortgages so it can be passed on to tenants who could be in trouble?

Whoís paying the bills? When this kicks in and lock down happens, how will workers pay their mortgages?

Will the banks give you a bye ball? I doubt it,  will the government force the banks to do it? I doubt a Tory government will enforce that.

Local business, restaurants, bars, cafeís will shut, hotels will close also. Recession again.

Change the title of the thread to, World Coronavirus

Most people wonít be able to I reckon. Scary times and thereís loads of folk out there that still donít realise the consequences of this virus.

Park runs cancelled also

Where did you see that? Nothing on my local parkrun fb apart from no refreshments available.

Waterworks my wife was saying

Thanks, surely thereís no way any of them are going ahead when you see runs scheduled for May being cancelled.

call the season off
positions as is  deal with promotion and relegation
this is a serious issue we are facing and the suits in Dublin need to show keadership

Call the season off and forget about promotion and relegation.

Same teams in same divisions next year and go again.


so long as Tyrone can play Kerry and Dublin again next year on bad pitches.

in all seriousness, i have to agree that the GAA response has been really poor on this. they need to make a statement asap.

Ah now we are at the nub of it, basically, itís always someone elseís fault.

No.

Its blindingly obvious that in this case, the actions of any individual can only do so much.


Ireland (and the rest of UK) is in the fortunate position of being island large enough to be largely self-sufficient, yet small enough that closing borders was a realistic option. Then, after a few weeks to understand the situation and establish infrastructure & procedures, a small and very controlled amount of people could have been let through, with strict quarantine measures in place.

By keeping the existence of the virus to the border entry points only, the burden on health could be managed. NHS/HSE under too much strain? Reduce the flux through the borders.


That would have had a lower impact on the economy than the massive disruption this will cause on a large scale... unless you think the Italian economy is working full steam this week?


Unfortunately, that option was not considered in time. In another 6-8 weeks, I'll reckon they wish they could turn back time and make a different decision.

Utter nonsense.

We should be locking down the country now as what Italy are currently doing. It will be too late doing it in 4-5 weeks.

Used to like it but now canít be bothered especially with no club finals.

Why has NL stopped playing 2 up front from the start when it had been successful up until last week? As for the defence Julian and Forster were all over the place. Julian in particular has turned into a bombscare. Also, Greg Taylor is not up to it. Frimpong did much better when he came on.

Thought the tactics were questionable again tonight. Celtic are fortunate enough that Gerrard has lost the Rangers dressing room.
