6 to 1
« on: October 17, 2020, 08:07:54 AM »
Fair play to Ed Potts(http://gaaboard.com/board/index.php?topic=29555.8835) for making the 6 to 1 statement yesterday on both Scene Around Six and Good Evening Ulster which contain all the important news in the whole world - pointing out the political/cultural background of the main spreaders in the BT1 to BT94 area of Ireland. (And none of this oul mullarkey of - oooooh I want be a victim, it's sectarian to say that - is it sectarian to be nationalist? - right so we are trying to avoid that one and get to the nitty gritty.)

These are the 7 day figures on the day that Ed made his interviews. Board members can help identify areas where a team won a county championship and went out to celebrate and thereby eliminate the reasons for high rates in that BT. There are plenty of mentions of winning celebrations on the coronavirus thread but the posts are all over the place on a fast moving thread. The Derry City mainstayers on that thread have given explanations of the possible reasons for the high figures there in an area which would not be a GAA stronghold to paraphrase the Kerry commentator.

Taking Belfast which is BT1 to BT17:    BT1(18 cases) 2(4 cases) and 3(1) would be classified as Down Town.
BT17 Twinbrook Poleglass Lagmore with 261 cases is the highest.
BT11 Andytown Lenadoon Turf with 212 is the next highest.

In comparison:

BT4 in East East-East Belfast has 84 cases.
BT16 the home of the Ballybeen Flute Band has only 39 cases.

Obviously population density comes into it for some post codes. Also why was BT50 never built - or if it was why is nothing there? Same goes for BTs 58 and 59 and why the gap between BT82 and BT92. (just checked one there - BT58 was a mythical place where people could write to something called Child Support Agency which the internet says is now defunct.)

So since the GAA cannot take all the rap particularly in the Belfast and Derry areas and once again - well done Ed for coming out and saying this - sure somebody could do a paper on it sometime if there are any universities open again.
Terence O'Neill's - "give Roman Catholics a good job and a good house and they will live like Protestants" did not have a coronavirus clause.
Any realistic or credible explanations?

Does that include nursing homes?  In my area (BT37) we have 58 cases, but we also have a few nursing homes a hospital also.. no GAA, couple of bars and an empty college. and a bad ass loyalist estate.. 
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Areas of social deprivation more to do with Covid outbreaks than the GAA it seems!

Interesting that Magherafelt is the less deprived Catholic area, but there are 20 less deprived predominately Protestant areas below it and 6 mixed areas. So much for equality!
Does the Catholic?Protestant split use the 2011 census, I suspect that the some areas have moved from Protestant to mixed since then?
