Thinking about the numbers per 100,000 of the population. I see blanch is the worst with 180 followed by my own Tallaght central followed by south inner city.
But these are all also have a way more condensed population compared to other areas in Dublin and for sure also the rest of the country.

Edit: sorry I see they do base it on the population per area

Now they are forced to wear them in schools, and cases are happening everywhere. I can only imagine the amount of bullying going on.

Then there's the physical challenges for those with asthma, breathing or sight issues. I find wearing them for a few minutes a day problematic, I don't know how people are supposed to cope with wearing them for hour after hour after hour, because it's official policy. 

The new rules imposed in Dublin, are confirmation that making them compulsory has not worked, and has been a waste of time. Apparantly, 50,000 jobs are now on the line, over a minute number of deaths per day.

Did you get bullied at school this week because of your mask? Speak with the teacher and ask for help and support.

A tinfoil hat is as useful as the crap we have to wear instead. 

I'm sure some of the 50,000 people about to be out of work, will send letters of thanks to the cranks, for being on the opposite side of the debate to me.

The only cranks are the anti mask and pub owners who fail to see we have a national emergency and a few pints of Guinness is not going to take priority over people's lives and the capacity of the ICU units.  If they go bust so be it.

National emergency my hole.

From speaking to friends and family who work in hospitals I am being told they are like ghost towns. Im curious where this lethal pandemic actually happening. 

Also, you would have to ask yourself if the governments sole interest is the safety of our people why is closing the schools not on level 1,2,3,4 or 5 of this current roadmap that they have completely winged like the rest of it ? So the teeshock comes on tv every few weeks with his power speech about the threat to our civilisation yet no matter how bad it gets, the schools are staying open?

Last winter there were 44 deaths by common flu in Ireland. Will there be a big difference from this number to the COVID ones this winter? There were around 70 suicides in the west of Ireland alone in August this year . In the same time how many died from COVID? 

I’m not saying this virus doesn’t exist. It does but so do many other threats to life in society, some of which are more lethal. Enough of the f**king hyperbole. 


l hear you are a racist now, father ?

Ffs stop equivocating everyday societal issues such as suicide and the winter flu with a global pandemic. Do you not realize how easily this contagion can spread? 

You're asking where this lethal pandemic is happening?!  You do realise that the guts of 2,000 people have died from it already in Ireland and it's all over the world. 

As much as I disagree with the government's approach, you seem to be assuming bad faith on their part by not closing the schools. They might even be 'winging it' as you say but I think any Irish government regardless of party would be acting in a similar way with the recommendations from NPHET.

Where are you getting the 70 suicides in August in the west figure from? A number of such figures were floating around Facebook/Twitter and were proven to be false.

There’s no denying there’s a virus doing the rounds and it’s bloody awful that some are losing their friends and family. 
All I am saying is terms like “national emergency“ are scaring the life out of people and creating more hysteria. 

Thousands are losing their livelihoods and bullsh*t phrases people are hearing and relaying from the media are feeding it. Enough of the hyperbole please, the world continues to turn.

Of course its a national emergency.  It's also a global emergency.  Why do you think the capital city is now quarantined from the rest of the country? For a laugh?Confused

And you are talking about hyperbole yet spout bullsh*t internet rumours about suicide rates which aren't true.  The people coming out with this stuff are the ones trying to whip up hysteria to further their own selfish aims and in reality don;t give a toss about the people they claim to be championing,

Where is your source for these suicides?  Some anti masker lad on facebook I presume.

And spreading unsubstantiated 'facts' about suicides also scares the life out of people and creates hysteria.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Its funny the people going on about suicides because the country is not being allowed to run as normal are more than likely the people who are anti mask and anti vax clowns which helps kill off a few more people.  Imagine the country was fully back to normal ffs.

I would like to see where that “fact” of 70 suicides in the west of Ireland is sourced from.  

Why the west of Ireland and not just Ireland and what counties constitute the west.  It’s a bizarre presentation of a stat that it would lend me to not believe it.  Tragically it would also have to be compared with data over the last 5 years for context.
