Energy emergency plan: businesses to be given an hour to prepare for blackouts and family homes to be disconnected (47)

DeclanBurke2 Open back up the power plants & cut this madness out

The only ones with the lights on will be the data centres

Yeah duh lol, and it'll be mostly working class areas too, where they can help it.

The jota of green energy

We're a first world country and our patetic government are letting this happen. Absolutely unbelievable

Anti-vaxx groups' claims about Covid deaths among the vaccinated are misleading (26)

Anti-lockdown groups suggest that vaccines aren’t working – but the data shows otherwise.

Analysis: Anti-vaxx groups' claims about Covid deaths among the vaccinated are misleading

So, if I'm reading correctly, the 155 deaths in those who were fully vaccinated but sadly died with 14 days of vaccination are also included in the unvaccinated grouping?

Vac cine is a scam and doesn't prevent anything

Between April & October in Ireland covid-19 deaths comprised: 42% or 155 vaccinated people. 55.2% or 224 deaths were partially vaccinated people. We can deduce that only 5.7% or 23 deaths from covid-19 in Ireland were unvaccinated people. Is the author an apologist for Pharma?

Goalposts: moved.

Where does return to offices stand after Covid spike? (14)

The full return to offices has been delayed until next spring, so where does the Government policy on return to workplaces stand now and what about the right to request remote working?

The full return to offices has been delayed until next spring, so where does the Government policy on return to workplaces stand now and what about the right to request remote working?

Excellent piece, I would say one thing though, where does the Health & Safety work act come into all this? The employer has a duty of care to the H&S of the employee & must provide a safe place of work. So, WFH, under public health advice must be best practice? Seems obvious.

Were does it leave school staff who have no contact tracing nor is there mask wearing in primary schools? Do we not deserve to have safe work places?

Schools are also workplaces.

The confusion of business owners and politicians was that ronan Glynn was making sense and thus off script.

Who wanted, returned to offices long ago. Do you have any other staff to write about?

Dear Mary: My husband was secretly texting my sister and says he also wants to have sex with other women (10)

I have been with my husband for nearly 13 years. He was secretly texting, calling and meeting my sister. We worked it out together as we have children. But I have just found out that he is trying to get someone to sleep with. I have seen that he has sent messages to other women. He has told me more than once he would love to sleep with other women. I love him but I feel I cannot trust him or talk to anyone about him. My children are young — where do I go and what do I do?

Dear Mary: My husband was secretly texting my sister and says he also wants to have sex with other women

Sounds like the poor guy is not getting any at home so he's sniffing around outside. Solution don't be so stuck up and be a whore in the bedroom that will sort out the problem

He is a legend. You are too uptight and should suggest a threesome with the sister.



Sounds like a dream, as my mother would say an empty house is better than a bad tennant, get rid of this man child before he does more damage

Christ, why not wrap up the marriage then go hunting.

We asked renters if they thought they could ever buy a home in Ireland. Here’s what they said

Most-read: Rent trap: I’m leaving Dublin as my homeowning dreams will never be realised

FFG DONT CARE - CENTRAL BANK DEPOSIT POLICY MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR RENTERS TO BUY - ( BIG Thank You👍😘 from FFG to Central Bank ) …Reality is Central Bank is full of entitled FFG Cronies !! HOW will YOU use your Vote ? Tired corrupt FFG & CB .Again ?

Whilst I appreciate its hard for single people to buy, stability is important to working families. Could have looked a bit beyond the woe is me €100k per annum brigade.

I wish I could've fine out about my grandparents never knew then

Move to the north. Belfast is a great city to live in and many lovely towns which are affordable.

All these articles say south Dublin - there are other places in north or inner city that are a lot cheaper and have great neighborhoods

Bishop of Galway reacts as TikTok priest is placed on indefinite leave for controversial videos (9)

The Bishop of Galway has reacted to a priest being placed on indefinite leave by his diocese after posting videos on social media that featured innuendo and joke.

Bishop of Galway reacts as TikTok priest is placed on indefinite leave for controversial videos

What a joke, he'd get less of a punishment for being a pedophile.

Odd that they suspended him. I thought they would stick with tradition and quietly move him on to another social media platform.

A few daft tik toks gets you fired. Gross acts of indecency against children- not so much. Disgusting evil institution.

Ahh go on go on go on ... sounds like an episode from Father Ted. If all he's guilty of is making a few lewd videos so what? as long as he's not a kiddy fiddler like some of his previous colleagues .

Ted said 'its a ecumenical matter' I have got a good idea send him to me ted we'll get him back to talking about god, mary, heaven,in other crazy storys n stuff the just went n made up his stuff n stories n things

Richard Chambers on Covid — ‘I don’t think the public knows how close we were to this being an unmitigated catastrophe’ (8)

Virgin Media news reporter Richard Chambers — Twitter darling and boyfriend of feted novelist Louise O’Neill — has written the Marmite book of the autumn. Readers will either gobble up A State of Emergency: The Story of Ireland’s Covid Crisis or avoid it like the ongoing plague. Released later this week, the book chronicles the pandemic in forensic detail and contains notably saltier language than we are used to hearing from the main “insiders” interviewed, including politicians, Nphet members and frontline workers.

The TV journalist and active Tweeter says now is the moment to remember what happened, as he recalls in compelling detail Ireland’s difficult course through the past 18 months in his new book

The unmitigated catastrophe was merely postponed.

Just making a quick buck off the back of a nations misery. At least he can’t say he asked tough questions throughout the pandemic. Because he didn’t. Just another Government/ NPHET spin merchant.

Rather stick pins in my eyes

The social media crowd don’t like journalists being too friendly with TD,s comment speaks volumes , he even house shares with the other isag cheerleader .

Calls to ban guns on film sets grow after shooting (8)

Calls were multiplying in Hollywood today to ban the use of firearms on film sets, three days after actor Alec Baldwin fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in a shocking on-set tragedy.

Calls to ban guns on film sets grow after Baldwin shooting

Just use fake guns and add the effects in post.

They shouldn’t be there !! End of !!

Typical calls.

No more action movies so

Hard to make certain films without them. Just need to make sure professional people prepare props.
