So what are your thoughts .Looking at BnQ and Pennys people are chomping at the Bit to get back out .Will it be Boom time for our industry or quiet .I really dont know .Think there might be a bit of Business from the HSE they wont want children with special needs sharing busses or coaches on the way to school ,Same with some community based projects .There could be plenty of different types of jobs available .

Options 3,4 and 5,
I don't think business will resume enough to sustain the number of taxis,there won't be any gigs,festivals and fuk knows what nightlife will be like....unless of course if it's all a load of bollox!!

looks like ck2 will have more drivers than they did before lockdown. A lot of new drivers have joined in the last few weeks. And I heard a lot of lads signed up for the overflow driver.

He took the covit coin now Fuck right off you are not fucking wanted ....
Former AIB chief executive and one-time Aer Lingus chairman Tom Mulcahy is permanently closing the landmark Queen’s pub in Dalkey and is believed to be preparing the asset to be put up for sale.

All staff at the south Dublin pub received a letter on Friday morning from Mr Mulcahy to tell them the pub “will not reopen and has ceased trading” and that they will be made redundant on statutory terms. The staff had been laid off since March 16th as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The pub is majority-controlled by Mr Mulcahy and his family, with a minority stake held by his business partner, Gerry O’Farrell, who is also involved in the Smokin’ Bones restaurants in Dublin. The owners paid an estimated €7 million for the Queen’s in 2003.

“We have had 17 wonderful years of engagement with The Queens. It leaves us with a huge sense of loss on the closure. The Covid cocooning gave us time for reflection. We realised that our time for retirement had arrived,” said Mr Mulcahy, speaking on behalf of himself and his wife, June.

No sitting at the bar is gonna reduce their customer base considerably.Some older folks don't like using cards or getting table service.

Many pubs are just a bar and a few stools they're not gonna be opening for a good while yet.Too small to be viable.

Thats the Unknown How many places wont reopen and what effect will that have on our business .If Coppers dosent reopen then The Harcourt Area will suffer big time .Will we see a return to staying Local .

Plenty of nobheads everywhere.Night drivers on the day shift won't make things any easier.Tourism massively down too. It's hard to be positive.Just be thankful yis don't have massive debts to service.Life could be a lot worse.
