From A Distance


This morning.

Government Buildings, Dublin 2.

Minister for Health Simon Harris speaking to the media on his way into Government Buildings in Dublin, as the Cabinet met to consider updated recommendations on tackling the coronavirus from the National Public Health Emergency Team. To wit:

The measures are likely to take in restaurants, cafés, hairdressers and a range of other service sectors regarded as non-essential.

Restrictions will also be introduced for outside gatherings.

While the measures will not be an exact replica of what has been announced in the UK, they will be significant.

Cabinet set to agree significant new restrictions (RTÉ)

    There will be a lot of us Irish women (and men!) looking very different without our hairdressers. Our families may not even recognise us!

      I do know the feeling. I had intended to get my hair trimmed a few weeks ago, but did not when they asked us for social distance. Before this is over, I will be able to do a fairly creditable Fr Jack!

      Terrible scenes

      Nails in tatters

      and as for my bikini and half leg – wild

      I was coming up on the cusp anyway before the shutdown
      like all my reminders to make appointments pinged over a week ago

    In happier times, do you think we might look back at the second photo and wonder,

    ‘Do you remember that time Simon Harris really stank?’
