Taxi Talk / Scamdemic figures
« Last post by John m on August 04, 2022, 07:15:56 pm »
Monaghan had the most Covid-19 deaths per capita out of the Republic of Ireland’s 26 counties, new figures have revealed.

While Dublin had the most deaths of all the counties, with 1,883, Monaghan had 169 Covid-19 deaths per 100,000 population.


This compares to the capitals 120 deaths per 100,000 population- which had the fourth highest death rate per capita.

After Monaghan was Louth with 151 deaths per 100,000 and Mayo was third with 145.

Galway had the lowest number of deaths per capita with 62 per 100,000 population, while Kerry had the second least with 64.

This is according to new data published as part of the Central Statistics Offices’ (CSO) ‘Frontier Series’, which has revealed that between March 1, 2020 and February 28, 2022 Covid-19 was identified as the “underlying cause of death” in 5,384 cases.

It also revealed that more than nine in 10 Covid-19 deaths in the first two years of the pandemic occurred in people aged over 65 years and that 35pc of all Covid-19 deaths recorded in this period occurred in Dublin.

The second-highest number of deaths were recorded in Cork with 512, then Kildare with 279. Limerick recorded 263, Mayo 200 and Donegal 182.

The Dublin City local electoral area (LEA) recorded 17pc of the national total at 915, while 390 deaths were recorded in Dublin South, 278 in Dublin Fingal and 264 in the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown area.


The highest number of reported deaths by LEA outside of Dublin was Cork County at 284.

Meanwhile, the lowest number was reported in Leitrim at 26, followed by Galway City and Longford with 36 each.

When looking at the data by age, 91pc of deaths occurred in people aged 65 years and over, including 75pc in those aged 75 years and above and 42pc in persons aged 85 years and over.

505 deaths were recorded in people aged under 65, including 127 in those aged 45-55, 51 in people aged 25-44 and five in people aged under 25 years, including one child aged under 14 years.

In terms of where the deaths occurred, 3,176 (59pc) people died in general and orthopaedic hospitals, with 1,564 (29pc) in nursing homes.

Homes deaths accounted for 4.8pc (257), with 3.4pc (183) recorded at community hospitals. No deaths were reported in maternity or paediatric hospitals over the period.

The CSO said: “The analysis focuses on deaths where Covid-19 was found to have been the underlying cause of death. A death certificate may list multiple causes of death, based on which the UCOD is identified by applying specific guidelines from the World Health Organization.”




They closed down a whole Country cost billions .I bet more people died from smoke or drink related illnesses .


Next SCamdemic is Monkey Pox ......Listening to some Expert on the Telly saying high risk people should be vaccinated .Our Tanaiste is in one of those High Risk Groups .I wonder will he lead by example and get vaccinated ?

Possible storm in a teacup?  To paraphrase your good self, the coming recession and fuel shortage will have us all huddling at home wrapped in sleeping bags, burning books and bits of twigs to keep warm while town (and buses) will shut down at 6pm :o  :o  :o

Taxi Talk / NTA more late night busses ?
« Last post by John m on August 04, 2022, 06:53:25 pm »
It pointed out that late night bus services have been introduced on a number of routes such as the 15, 39a and 41 in recent years.

A new 24-hour operation is in place between Sandymount and Adamstown via the city centre and South Lucan, and also between Ringsend depot and Maynooth/Celbridge via the city centre and Lucan Village.

An orbital route along the N4 between Blanchardstown and the Point Village via DCU and Collins Avenue has also been rolled out.

The NTA said further 24-hour services are expected to commence in late summer on routes G1/G2 to Liffey Valley/Red Cow via Ballyfermot, adding that future phases will include more expansion of overnight services.

The NTA argued that the delivery of 24-hour bus services on a regular schedule across the network “is more feasible”.


“The NTA is committed to delivering more of these services as the BusConnects Dublin network is rolled out,” they added.

However, Fine Gael TD Neale Richmond told The Journal that late-night Luas services are “badly needed” as are more 24-hour Dublin Bus services, “given the persisting issues with access to taxis in Dublin city centre”.

“This is becoming a public safety issue with many people being forced to walk home, often alone, late at night as public transport is not operating and taxis are hard to come by,” he said.

I wasn't guessing Kenneth, I made thet very same inquiry when I had my WAT about 10 year ago.

Oddly enough my good wife works in the mid link office on the M7/m8 toll and not a week goes by without some grumpy wat drivers arguing with the toll booth operators trying to say they are exempt because the vehicle is a cripplemobile .

It's ok Kenneth no apologies required.
You could have told us all that 3 Fookin pages back !!  ::fds

It's different up in the big city.My car takes loads of shit that I can't charge for and I frequently get jobs on the apps with my car loaded up to the window by some Brazillain or Chinese students moving house for a few days.The journey usually only lasts a couple of Kilometers so you spend nearly as much time unloading as you do driving.Probably not worth it most of the time as they never tip.

I can't understand why some so called taxi drivers go for small cars with tiny boots as cabs. Its competitive enough without making it harder by refusing  your potential fares because you can't fit stuff in or a fare will just skip them altogether. I saw an African fella at the bus station in a Nissan qashqai having trouble putting 4 large cases in the boot with 4 passengers standing there looking at him with thats not going work faces, but the Nigerian was determined to get them in, the parcel shelf was even removed. I was across the road at traffic light, I was spotted by one of the 4 and the hand went, I nodded pulled in behind and they started taking their cases, the Nigerian was pissed as the fair was going out to a hotel in inverin Connemara. He lost 55 euros. They asked him would he be able to take all these cases he said he could no problem. I loaded them up and heading of in less than a minute.
