The total population - which is the only figure that matters.

The adult population figure is strictly for media consumption.

The total population figure is the only thing that matters for spread.
The adult figure does affect the proportion likely to end up in hospital or dead.
The ROI has a pretty decent adult figure, but they haven't done the teenagers as well as Spain and Portugal, who have fully vaccinated 80%+ of the population.

More than decent and we aren't going to get many more vaccinated unless under 12s are vaccinated which is unlikey. As you said adult population the most important as those are the ones most likely to end up sick.

How are people accepting going back to restrictions when everyman and his dog has been vaccinated? If the shit show of a health service is overrun at this stage it’s feck all to do with covid but the government’s lack of investment for years.
76% have been vaccinated. Which means 24% haven't. That's 1.25 million people.

Now Omicron changes the game again.

People will accept restrictions because they are necessary.

If Omicron wasn't around, restrictions over Christmas would still be necessary.

With Omicron around, the token restrictions that were announced last night will be like a chocolate fireguard.

The next week will change the game.
Sid is that 76% of the total population, or adult population?

Of those that can be vaccinated (above the age of 12) 90% of the population are fully vaccinated.

As a Liverpool fan I’m worried about this new interim manager. Looks like the circus is drawing to an end and prima Donna’s will be traded for some work horses.

I'm worried too. Look at their fixture list  :-X

A run of fixtures that this group of inconsistent United players are well capable of dropping plenty of points in.

Hard earned and much needed 3 points for United. Might have won more comfortably if such a bizarre opener wasn't conceded. 12 goals and 2 assists is not too shabby in 16 appearances for a 36 year old on his return. Plenty of issues with United on and off the field but Ronaldo is far down the list of issues. I'd say it was a big eye opener for the watching Rangnick.

Billy O'Farrell. A Laois man now Longford's manager.
Billy O’Loughlin you mean.

Apols - yes. My mistake.

I don't know much about him - but I think it's better to get a young lad, hopefully, on the way up, than a serial manager on the way down.

A nephew of Luke Dempsey.

Former Mayo footballer Aidan Kilcoyne is part of the backroom team  - coach I think.

Kilcoyne is goalkeeper coach. I thought he mostly played outfield? I know played with Knockmore in goal towards end of his career .

Was the main scoring forward on the Mayo 2006 U21 All Ireland winning team. Played a few years as a forward for Mayo seniors. A serious knee injury finished his outfield career in 2013.

Cathal Cregg after 15 years of service to Roscommon.
Classy player.  I think he's only 30 or so. Has he been injured?

35 in April. Made his senior County debut in 2006 aged 19.

Carrick couldn't have asked for two better results in his time as manager than 2-0 win away Villarreal and today a 1-1 away to the league leaders.

For near 70 minutes it looked like United might nick the most unlikely win but undone by yet another individual error and unnecessary foul by Wan Bissaka. United did take the lead from a error themselves and both Fred, Rudiger should have scored late on.

Tuchels kryptonite seems to be United at home, four games two defeats and two draws now.

WHO’s Dr Mike Ryan, on B.1.1.529 now know as the Omicron Variant

“This happens, viruses evolve… This is not the end of the world. The sky is not falling in. There’s this idea that we’re just waiting for the next variant and I don’t want people to spend their lives worrying about that every day.”

The hospital situation in ROI

572 in hospital,  643 it was last Friday. ICU 118 no change on a week ago.

Interesting poll results. In regards to the ROI 93% of adults fully vaccinated I don't think we would have got much more even if it was mandatory.

Connacht senior semi final between Pearses and Mountbellew Moylough that was to be played Sunday is called off.

Any reason why?
Covid outbreak in the Mountbellew-Moylough camp.

That was a massive result for Man Uniteds season. Knock out champions league where anything can happen and things could look a whole lot differently in February. Importantly it means they also avoid Thursday night Europa League football.

Would they have got the same result under Solakjaer? The way things had slid I’m not sure they would have which is a part indictment on the players too. I don’t think anyone believes Carrick is the answer long term but if they get a decent result against Chelsea on Sunday he could well be in the managers chair for a bit longer yet.

This game had 0-0 written all over it till the VR keeper decided to give the ball to a lad being marked...

Lucky is all I'm saying.

Agree with this, DDG kept them in it and it would have been a different story had Utd not been gifted a flukey goal.

Degea made three saves last night, the last one at the start of the 2nd half i would regard as stop class. Uniteds first goal came from the pressure applied by Fred to force the error, that type of goal is a rare sight for United nowadays but the type of goals that Liverpool, City and Chelsea regularly score.

As for Sunday a big step up, anything but a comfortable home win for Chelsea will be a surprise. Former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde the latest linked but just for interim role before a full manager is found next season.
