Up The Hill Backwards


This morning.

Dublin Castle, Dublin 2.

Arriving for a cabinet meeting to agree arrangements for the possible lifting of restrictions this Friday were, from top: Minister Eamon Ryan, Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly and Taoiseach Micheál Martin.


The National Public Health Emergency Team has advised that existing restrictions on hospitality should stay in place for several months.

If adopted by Government, it would see basic measures such as mask wearing, social distancing and Covid certificates remain in place until around spring 2022.

However, the NPHET advice does provide for ways to be found to allow other venues such as nightclubs open safely, including through the use of the Covid certificate.

This Friday was due to see an end to the requirement for physical distancing, or mask wearing outdoors, or indoor, in private settings.

There was also to be an end to the need for certificates of vaccination, or immunity or proof of having contracted Covid-19, for access to or engagement with any events.

Last night, coalition party leaders considered the NPHET advice and Government today must decide if some of the outstanding pandemic restrictions will be altered on Friday.

    This will never end. It’s all part of the ID2020 plan. Wake up you fools.
    We have over 92% of people aged 18+ fully vaccinated.
    236 of the 249 people who died since the 11th of August were people aged 55+ per the HPSC.
    We have 97.8% vaccination uptake in people aged 50-59.
    We have 99.6% vaccination uptake in people aged 60-69.
    We have 100% vaccination uptake in people aged 70+
    Vaccination uptake percentages sourced from the Irish Times vaccine tracker. They have been over 90% for each age cohort for over 3 months.
    Wake up. The facts show the current crisis is down to waning vaccine protection primarily not a small cohort of unvaccinated people.
    The media are lying to protect the government and healthcare system because it’s not fit for purpose. If we open up it could well collapse. They are creating fear now to ensure higher booster uptake.
    It’s fairly transparent.
