A Scanner Darkly


This morning.

Dublin Castle, Dublin 2.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin speaking to media as he arrived at Dublin Castle ahead of this morning’s meeting of the Cabinet.

 it is likely to discuss the reopening of indoor dining, although the decision to go ahead from next Monday has already been taken.

A Covid scanner is being developed by Government to allow businesses to check certs.

Some details remain to be agreed and the guidelines will not be published until the legislation underpinning them is signed into law.

The Vintners Federation of Ireland said members will ask customers about vaccination and check for certificates.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the vaccine programme is rolling out very effectively.

He said people need to be vigilant in the coming weeks, adding, “we have all got to adhere to the guidelines no matter how tired we are of this pandemic”.

        I don’t care about that. I don’t wanna be inside anyway. I just think hes a weasel in general. meeting privately with a huge British mutlinational investment fund in April. selling out his own people to brits who really don’t need the money. then getting all hissy and angry when asked about it in the Dail. id love a Taoiseach who works for the Irish people, and not against us.

    Anything on FFG/NAMA taking what looks like hundreds millions of dirty money from a smooth middle eastern chap,with entourage and regal airs who is now in jail in LA ?
    The political and financial implementation of this are just stating.

    1. Johnny

      Manaford was a Barrack appointee at the RNC,he was also charged and convicted forced to forfeit his assets to uncle sam,pardoned,this case was kicked by Muller,over to the justice dept.


      The United States Government will now pursue these Irish assets/cash from FFG/NAMA,which rightly belong as restitution to the american people,for Barrack/Colony Capital illegally influencing its foreign policy in the middle east.

      the feds will make Tom a godfather offer,my bet he takes it cooperates.

      -Michael Corleone: Well, when Johnny was first starting out, he was signed to a personal services contract with this big-band leader. And as his career got better and better, he wanted to get out of it. But the band leader wouldn’t let him. Now, Johnny is my father’s godson. So my father went to see this bandleader and offered him $10,000 to let Johnny go, but the bandleader said no. So the next day, my father went back, only this time with Luca Brasi. Within an hour, he had a signed release for a certified check of $1000.
      Kay Adams: How did he do that?
      Michael Corleone: My father made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
      Kay Adams: What was that?
      Michael Corleone: Luca Brasi held a gun to his head, and my father assured him that either his brains or his signature would be on the contract……. Thats a true story.-

    If there is to be a scanner then those details are to be checked centrally. That means there must be a record of who attended where, and when.


    1. Upon an outbreak in a particular public house or restaurant, are those details to be used for track and trace?

    2. Are they to be used for any other purpose. For example, rolled up and be passed to revenue?

  3. Liam Deliverance

    I did wonder what the point of the QR code was and that the cert is easily forged.

    So these certs are now useless UNLESS a business has a scanning device and an internet connection to check the database for a legitimate cert.

    In theory you could borrow a Vaxxed persons cert unless they are gonna cross-check it against photo ID/ DNA/ Iris scan?
