Your Number’s UpMay 28, 2020
Gardaí Will Fight You On The BeachesMay 28, 2020
Not the sort of post we’re all that happy to be updating daily, but, bottom line, numbers don’t lie.
And by facing reality head-on, we can then truly move onwards and upwards.
Still, as Ireland and its people plainly strive to do the right thing to stop the spread of Covid-19, it’s disheartening to see other parts of the world put wealth before health too.
Not that everyone seems capable of looking at the bigger picture. Trump to the left of us, Bolsonaro to the right – here we are, stuck in the middle of the worst worldwide pandemic in living history, and some fecks are still only interested in their own little patch.
And what people not going to work might do to their GDP.
Not that it’s all doom and gloom. Life during wartime can actually bring out the best in people, and that’scertainly been the case here in Greystones – as we’ve charted again, and again, and again. And again.
Each day, we’ll add the latest Covid-19 figures released for Ireland, to give some shape to our national curve…
