    some of the viral ‘applause’ moments in Spain/Italy seemed spontaneous and admirable. maybe they weren’t but not sure a formalised round of applause at 8pm is anything but a wee bit cringe

    A round of applause? It reminds me of the three most useless things in the world:

    Men’s tits.
    The Pope’s balls.
    And a vote of thanks to the workers!

    Well, when someone who actually is working their bits off on the frontline whinges about this, I’ll listen.

    In my own circle, I’ve checked with two family members) via the family WhatsApp group) who are on the frontline in two hospitals in Galway and both sent applause emojis / thanks in response, so some DO appreciate the moment anyway :)

    I for one will applause.

    a lot of pals posting the nightly applause from their balconies in Paris, it’s pretty uplifting, give a sense of community, reminds you why you are staying at home , the kids are loving it, don’t see the cringe

    We should do it at 6 in the evening, sure we will be waiting for the angelus to finish and the news to start

    I think they’d prefer decent supplies and testing kits for themselves than a round of applause

    but that’s just me
