I really, REALLY hope that there’s a good number of people that just flat out revolt!

I guess there is a solid reason or two more Irish live outside the Emerald Isle than on it.

Which really wasn’t a famine at all (like most “famines”) but the shipment of non-potato crops to England where they were enjoyed by the British...

Ireland had plenty of food available, but only blighted potato was offered to the natives.

But I digress.

If there is one thing the Irish do well it’s rebellion, tough to get cohesion though.

More proof that this won't end until there is a vaccine.

No surprise, Ireland is small, densely crowded, and they have an independent streak. Also the weather can't be helping, even in the best of times.

When summer is 68 and rainy you're in a covid laboratory. :-)

Just watch; a vaccine won't be good enough for the fear mongers either. This nonsense will never end without a massive pushback of some kind.
