Not sure if they have views on the League of Ireland (though I suspect they would range from ambivalence to privatisation!).

    Also known as "boots " Tierney, wouldn`t imagine that its an association football reference.

    Maybe it is more important but it shouldn't be the only consideration.
    Suicide rates are really not what people claim them to be: https://www.bmj.com/content/371/bmj.m4352 most developed countries reported stable or falling rates of suicide last year, though that started to tick up again later on. It certainly seemed plausible that lockdown would cause a problem in that regard, but the evidence is against it.
    It's funny how you can't spread carcinogens in an office by smoking, but you can cough and cough and cough.

    Like them or loathe them but video calls eg zoom have resulted in higher levels of contact between many cohorts and various psychiatric services. Im not convinced that in person visits should be replaced in any way but but 'virtual appointments, contact and case reviews are better than nothing and the long waits for in house appointments pre covid anyway. Some sort of hybrid could improve service though. It will be interesting to see if there is any correlation between the trends mentioned by John and a forced new way of quicker engagement between psychiatric service providers and patients!?

    I see Derry have asked supporters not congregate outside the ground now as well and are getting absolutely roasted by their own fans on Facebook , Harps got the same on Twitter for it, clubs can only do so much but can't make supporters listen to them....

    Good question! The crowd were dispersed at the previous game, less there tonight but a lot seemed to be hanging about the fields behind and then went home. Garda chatted with those who remained. FFS its one step ladder used ro get up on the wall, just fcuking confiscate it and every one that there is an attempt to use after - problem solved! Dundalk cant actively do much outside the ground just ask for fans to repect restrictions, Gardai on the other hand are condoning things with inaction. How can they go break up a house party when live on TV are seen standing beside a large group chatting....

    Just as an early reference point, and guide to how quickly the picture changes, here is the UK incident rate for covid-19 variants. First few are the UK variant so big numbers, then almost insignificant numbers for other variants until you scroll down to VOC-21APR-02 or the Indian variant of concern. Those numbers are not great, especially considering the vaccination rate is high in the UK compared to when the UK variant was detected, and travel restrictions bedded in now. With the opening up of the UK, football fans allowed back with restricted attendances etc. its very much a watch this space as over 1k cases may seem small enough now, it is against the number of the other variants bar the 1st outbreak of the UK variant which put us in to the 2nd lockdown. People are sick of the can being kicked down the road but i'd say this will be watched carefully well in to June so no unexpected early easing of restrictions i'd say.

    (On the video clip - Quite amusing to hear T O'D mention 'Home Farm' instead of 'Finn Harps').

    Maybe TO'D has rumbled the next phase of the Confidence and Supply arrangement - Harps to be rebranded Home Farm and play in Whitehall?

    Waterford confirmed another player tested positive for Covid yesterday. Rest of the squad being tested again tomorrow. Hopefully they are all clear and can get back training soon to prepare for next week's game v Derry.

    The rumour for the return of spectators is five percent of capacity. Its a very conservative figure as surely ten percent could be achieved safely. I'm wondering does the five percent cap make a reopening financially unviable for LOI clubs. Take Richmond as an example I'm not fully sure of our official capacity but say four thousand , is it worth the red tape and safety measure's for two hundred punters.

    Rovers won't open for 5%, and probably not even for 10%.
