Quiet a lot of our youth today have no problem taking methamphetamine's which most likely were made in a garden shed or a farm yard barn with little or no sanitisation. Also cocaine which is often cut and mixed with anything at all that is white and powdery.

And the final insult which most never think of is if'n they are buying off the street or in the pub, where does the dealer conceal his 'deals' on the way to work ? In the one place the Gardai will not search on the street, Up His Hole !

They have no problems or questions about drugs if'n they are getting high, but when it comes to a vaccine that just might save the world, there 'Pink 'n Fluffy' side comes out !

Charles Byrnes: has had his licence suspended for six months

Cheltenham Festival-winning trainer Charles Byrnes had his licence suspended for six months at an Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board hearing on Monday after Viking Hoard was found to have tested positive for a sedative at Tramore in 2018.

Viking Hoard was pulled up in a handicap hurdle at Tramore on October 18, 2018, for which he was sent off at odds of 8-1.

He was found to have tested positive for the sedative hydroxyethylpromazinehydroxide (HEPS), a metabolite of acepromazine (ACP), afterwards.

HEPS was found in high enough concentration to exceed the International Screening Limit (ISL). The ISL is 10 nanograms/millilitre.

The estimated detected level in Viking Hoard's urine sample was 1000 nanograms/millilitre, or 100 times the applicable ISL. It was established that Viking Hoard was subject to a "dangerous degree of sedation during the race", and the committee came to the conclusion the horse had been "nobbled" by an unidentified third party when left unaccompanied.

Having considered the evidence, the IHRB referrals committee was satisfied Byrnes was negligent in his supervision of Viking Hoard on the day of the race and found him in breach of Rule 96(a) as a prohibited substance was present in the post-race sample taken.

Taking into account the gravity of what occurred, the committee ordered Byrnes' licence be withdrawn for a period of six months and imposed a €1,000 fine on the trainer.

Back when the vaccine was announced in December I questioned a few young lads in the cab as to whether they would take the vaccine or not ?

The First lad about 20; "That Bill Gates is a fookin phidofile bey, I ain't taking anything he has" !!
I have no response to that and say nothing at all.

Another lad about 18; "I ain't taking it bey, Four people took it in England today and their faces fell off !",
This One I decide to question and I ask him; "Where did you hear that ?",
"Facebook bey, it's all over facebook".
So I tell him; "That actually did not happen, if'n you had read the real news you would have learned that 2, not 4, health care workers in the UK had an allergic reaction to the vaccine today, the same 2 workers also had an allergic reaction to every other vaccine they have ever taken, they have both received medical help and are fine, nobodies faces Fell Off !".
The young lad now in a huff replies; "OK, so bey !".

‘Significant’ gangland criminal was target of Garda raids which led to €1million cash seizure
Pandemic sees increase in people obtaining taxi licences to transport large sums of cash around city, security sources say

A major garda operation over the weekend led to €1 million worth of cash being seized.

A NORTH Dublin drug dealer was the prime target of a major Garda operation over the weekend which led to €1m cash being seized.

The significant money haul was discovered concealed in a vehicle at an apartment complex in Raheny, Dublin, yesterday afternoon by armed detectives.

Other searches were carried out in the city centre while several cars have also been recovered to be examined as part of the investigation.

A criminal, originally from the Cabra area and a long-term target for detectives, is understood to have been the prime target of the raids.

Sources said the man, who also has links to criminals in the Finglas area, has been using a taxi in an attempt to go about his criminal enterprise undetected.

"This individual is certainly a significant figure in relation to organised crime but has managed to go undetected for several years,” a senior source said.

"During the pandemic gardaí have also seen an increase in people using taxis or obtaining taxi licences in an effort to hide their assets when transporting large amounts of cash around the city.”

As part of yesterday's raids the man's Raheny home was searched and several cars seized during the operation by the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB).

A Garda spokesman said that during the search of one vehicle a concealment of cash was discovered.

"The vehicle and its contents remain subject of examination. However, the amount seized is believed to exceed €1 million."

The cash was vacuum packed into several different bundles and in the process of being transported.

Gardaí say their investigations into the €1m seizure are continuing and no arrests have yet been made.

It was the second major cash seizure in the capital in less than 24 hours following a separate operation in north Dublin where over €100,000 was seized.

Assistant Garda Commissioner John O'Driscoll, who is in charge of the Garda's national units investigating organised and serious crime, said that seizures were the latest success against crime gangs they are targeting.

"We continue to target those causing most harm in our community," he said.

"This seizure of a significant quantity of cash will, we believe, contribute to the disruption and potential ultimate dismantling of particular organised crime groups that we continue to target, building on earlier success achieved, in recent years," the senior officer said.

Yesterday's seizure is among the most significant by the GNDOCB so far this year and follows around €1m being recovered in Kildare earlier this month.

More than €3m in cash was seized in the first 17 days of 2021.

Last year the value of cash seized by the GNDOCB more than doubled on the previous year as gardaí focus on targeting the profits being made by drugs gangs across the country.

I always thought of mackerel as a summer fish... dunno why...
Most likely because they would 'break' in the late summer and come in shoals very close to shore chasing the sprats and were easy pickings from any pier fer anybody with a rod.
My Mother used to pan fry them and serve them with spuds in their jackets and lashing of butter, probably the tastiest meal that I have ever eaten.

Don't know but I believe flights are down 90% so probably not.

(11 Dec 2020) Dublin Airport Christmas Passenger Numbers Down By 88%



Cork doesn't look much better:  https://www.dublinlive.ie/lifestyle/travel/dublin-airport-covid-ryanair-aerlingus-19651681

Cork Airport had just under 9,000 passengers in December, meaning they had fewer than 300 passengers per day.
