This morning.

A Garda checkpoint just outside Dublin Port. From this week, new legislation allows the Gardai to fine travellers who are found passing through Dublin Port or Dublin Airport without a valid reason.

    Great header there!
    Why would anyone be at the airport without a good reason, or just passing through. The mind boggles…I’m on my way out on the next flight. I’m off to Syria, going to Turkey… just to get away. My luggage just showed up, I work in the flower shop, meeting my best friend flying in from Paris. Just wonder what the Garda hear on a daily basis.

    for the checkpoints around the city, they should heavily man them on weekend nights. With supermarkets closed theres no reason why someone is out at that time other than visiting. At weekends I hear people going to and fro houses from taxis for hours. Durnkin giggling and laughter. It only took a few weeks (again) for people to lose the will to stay safe, and instead succumb to their want for socialising.

      Jesus wept, you must love the control the government have over you.
      Anyone who believes this scam at this point is a member of a cult.

        hahaha.. scam? what.. the pandemic? please! do give me your evidence. Do you really think every country in the world got it together to sing off the same hymn sheet and follow the same plan? and not one of them said “we aren’t doin it” and kept quiet? come on, dude .. really ?

            you’ll have to gimme more than just saying a place name if you’re guna convince me something happening all over the world is an elaborate hoax

      “ and instead succumb to their want for socialising”

      Those dirty socialisers.

      Except the need for company, friends and socialising is literally in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Making up the most of our psychological needs.

      Also, Dr Fart, if there’s so many house parties going on around you – why don’t you call the cops?

        I aint no grass, Micko. As for Mazlow’s Hierarchy of Needs .. I think even he would make a temporary acception when it comes to protecting society from a virus. See that’s the thing, people can’t park things like partying, for a short while, to save actual lives. Sure you cant even bring yourself to put a mask on the the five minutes you’re in a shop. You’d prefer to put people in danger than do that. People have gone so soft. So weak and selfish.

          Yikes. You’re quite the angry little chappy aren’t you?

          Maybe you should keep that anger for your neighbours having parties.

          Or you could get annoyed at some stranger on the internet ;p

    Another example of institutional racism only fining travellers for this. Surely a disproportionate number would be flying compared to the general population. We have to stamp out this racism & blatant misuse of Garda resources.
