Rightly so. Crooks who shouldnít be allowed get away with that.

Of course he is. Probably the only man more shameless than Ian Og.

Going onto Irish tv and complaining about wars then doesn't even know how long they were for.

He's a bluffer. The theories all seem to go to russian money.

Was listening to 5 live on the way into work, the vast majority of those with Covid in hospital are not vaccinated, that came from the head of the medical doctors federation, he also said that we will need to have the booster to help with this winter as people's immunes will be less due to the last time they had the second jab..

Now, I'd take the information from him over the crackpots on facebook in fairness, I know, call me crazy...

Who knows what's going to happen this winter, it won't be pretty that's for sure, but if several million of people in the UK haven't taken a vaccine how will it ever work?

Are we going down to the point of acceptable death, with hospitals over run with more 'acceptable' deaths from other issues because we have no staff to run it or beds to put people in?

The vaccine roll out really should have been what drove us back towards normality(it has been) but the number of people still not taking the vaccine is a pain, so selfish.

As crude as it sounds, we do have to have a number of acceptable deaths. Every other part of our life has an acceptable number of deaths. We have to live with Covid just like we live with many other diseases. We cannot go back to locking people down. Personally Iíd like to see the government turn the screw more and make more things undoable without vaccine passport, thereís people who canít take the vaccine we should be giving them a similar exemption pass but everyone else get the jab and get on with life

Pointing the finger at the unvaccinated is a deliberate distraction from the fact that the vaccine clearly isnít working, and isnít stopping the rise in infection rates.

What would you see as success for the vaccine? Is eradication the only thing that would be a success for you?

I just don't see how a (full) lockdown is possible again.

The whole bloody thing is a mess. The "anti vax" stuff is getting more militant too and I don't think it's going to be too long until somebody gets badly hurt with the way the "movement" is going. I don't care if you don't believe in the vaccine btw - it's just when you believe a lot of shite like 90+% of the world are absolute morons because they do and it is just a new world order etc etc. Those are the views that are bonkers.

Going nowhere soon unfortunately and I don't think anyone really knows what to do or if they do they haven't the balls to do it  :( Eradication is clearly not possible so how do you get to where you want to get to with it.

You create doubt I think though. Unlike the Liverpool penalty where djota was just clobbered though he had absolutely no need to exaggerate with that tackle.

If he hadnít been so dramatic I think it would have been a penalty.

Initially it looked harsh but on replay definite red. Kicked him square in the face.

Penalty ridiculous there too. What was the boy at.

recent data shows that out with those under 30 (the group at an almost zero risk of death from Covid) the vaccinated are significantly more likely to catch Covid.

Do you have a source for that?

It the above is true it would be pretty major news...

It was about as off the ground as the pick up was for Peter Canavan's point in 95...

Very enjoyable game.

Schools playing at high levels e.g mcrory is a massive boost to a lads development. Going to training after school is much easier than making a development panel and travelling round the counTy to train.
Back in the day Eddie McToal and Hugh Mcgettigan would be driven st marys on to competing in mcrory and the age groups below. maybe the current bunch of teachers don't have the same passion? they are volunteers like the other 99% of us in the Gaa so cant be too hard on them but i think committed teachers is what is missing in the schools not the talent
How long is it since St Maryís regularly competed in the MacRory Cup?
How long are those teachers retired?

Did they lose the passion & commitment?

Or perhaps the talent began to dry up. Perhaps the passion & commitment was lost by pupils rather than teachers. Perhaps staying behind at school to train isnít as easy for lad today as it was 20 years ago.

A 1,000%!!!  The commitment levels required by all (staff, players, parents) is not there, outside coaches would help drive it by better conditioning, but those competing regularly at Mcrory level are similar to the levels the boys train at schools rugby cup teams, Inst, Methody, and the rest, itís hard work, some kids ainít up to hard work, theyíd rather go to the gym to look good and tell everyone on social media!!

Itís a chicken egg thing though. Whatís the reward at the end of all this work? The reality is it is less prestigious to be an Antrim county footballer than say Tyrone or Armagh. Also in clubs it is the be all and end all to get to be a senior player. I donít think it is as much here.

How does that kind of stigma change?
