On the frontline.
Somewhere in Cork.
Bournemouth, Dorset, England this afternoon
A major incident was declared in Bournemouth today after thousands of people flocked to Britain’s beaches leaving the emergency services ‘stretched to the absolute hilt’ on the second consecutive hottest day of the year.
Council bosses said they were ‘appalled‘ at the scenes on the Dorset coast, blasting the ‘irresponsible behaviour and actions of so many people’ as temperatures soared towards 93F (34C) in southern England and Wales today
So angry at groups of teenagers/families around Connolly station squashing into DARTs towards Howth like everything is back to normal 😠No distancing or masks. Edcuate yourselves, wear a face covering to protect others. Glad they’re going to be mandatory. Better late than never

I was tested for Coronavirus in Dun Laoghaire [County Dublin]on Friday, May 15 and this leaflet (above) was handed to me. It recommends (twice!) keeping a distance of 1 metre (3 feet) from other people.
It amazes me that there has been no comment on the fact that the HSE has already printed and is distributing advice leaflets which state: ‘Keeping a distance of more than 1 metre (3 feet) from other people is recommended.’

Phoenix Park, Dublin.
The Taoiseach and his partner Matthew Barrett met friends at the Wellington Monument on the Parkgate Street side of the park on Sunday afternoon.
The area of the park is almost 8km from his apartment on Carpenterstown Road in the Dublin West constituency.
Under the Government’s Covid-19 restrictions, people are prohibited from any non-essential travel more than 5km from their homes.
However, following queries from the Irish Independent, the Taoiseach’s spokesperson said: “The Taoiseach was in the Phoenix Park with his partner Matt and two friends on Sunday afternoon, in line with public health guidance.”
“He was within 5km of the Stewards Lodge, where he is staying during the Covid Emergency,” he added.
Do you seriously think #LeosPissUpInThePark is not news worthy? The whole country is talking about it FFS! #Ignoreland

The next time they start the “OK Boomer” stuff. Contrast social distancing at Sandycove (left) this morning with a Main Street Blackrock queue for coffee (right).
Do people need flat whites so badly? The perennials in Sandycove are probably 3-4 times their age…
