So 15/20% of Ireland's current COVID cases are due to travel.
Is it beyond the wit of our media to ask a simple question or a few simple questions even.
"What countries are the cases coming from"
"What is the breakdown of numbers per country"
"Are the cases visitors or returning citizens"

For once I'm going to take your advice (implicit I think).
I'm not even going to Google him.

He shows up in US coms like Parks and Rec, Curbed, Portlandia, Brooklyn 99 and does a lot of voice over work for kids animated movies. Just a very punchable face, never remotely funny. Kills scenes potentially good scenes with his gnome face

Had to wear trousers AND a hoodie yesterday.

Up to then it was either shorts or short sleeves.

Summer is over. Winter is coming.

Rugby pundits (and anyone else) misusing the word “unbelieveably”.

“I was unbelieveably disappointed by their performance.”

“I’ve been unbelieveably impressed with him this year.”

Have you, really? No.

Taking the other view "turnip" and derivatives like "turnipstan" Sewage etc

And here, Berch is one of the worst offenders for getting players’ names wrong. Every week on the 42 he mentions “Ronan Solano” and “Mario Toje”

You could even hear Murray Kinsella (I think) laugh a bit when he said it.

Eddie Van Halen, legendary guitarist, has died aged 65
Another one of the greats is gone.
Van Halen, what a group.

A certain class of gentleman, let's say bolshy, entitled and possibly attend the church of Clarkson, specifically the ones who park their autos in the P&K. I've given up on confronting them as I'm genuinely afraid of what I'll do/say/set on fire (insert as applicable). More often than not met with the refrain of "in my day", m0th€rfunker as long as you're currently topside it's still your funking day, and you're part of this thing called society which like it or not often changes! Now then pull your trousers down to an acceptable height and cop the fup on, you look ridiculous.

And the reason I'm so worked up is I've an additional needs kid and the extra space of the P&K spots and the proximity to the shop because he's a flight risk is such a boon. Did I mention I hate them?!
