Queuing for Gorbys

Queuing for Gorbys

A bunch of lads queuing for Gorbys on Oliver Plunkett Street, Cork in 2007. Nightclubs are due to open soon again.

2,399 new cases of Covid-19 today. Even with vaccination I think we can expect a huge surge in about two weeks. I’ll be glad if I’m wrong.

Frank Flaherty, Cork’s Birdman

Frank Flaherty

Frank Flaherty is pictured above feeding pigeons on Daunt Square in 2019. He was recently approached by a litter warden who told him to stop feeding the birds because local businesses complained of excessive bird poo and feathers in the area.

The dog and the red door

A dog sits in a doorway on Paul Street, pictured 6 years ago. I’m not sure which doorway it was but I think it was one opposite Pinochio’s. Streetview isn’t helpful as it only has streetview going back to 2017 for this street.

Covid19 Supporters Unite

Covid19 Supporters Together

Supporters of SARS-CoV-2 gathered on the Grand Parade yesterday to encourage members of the public to get infected with the virus instead of being vaccinated as it’s “just like the flu” or “the vaccine makes you sick”. There was a good turn out at the event and a spokesperson for the virus said they hoped for a positive bump in numbers in the next two weeks.

Thankfully they’re in the minority as 88.1% of over-18s in Ireland are now vaccinated. The journey to removing all restrictions will start next month, culminating on October 22nd when the only real restrictions will be:

  • Use of EU Digital Covid Certificate for international travel.
  • Wearing of facemasks in medical settings, retail and public transport.

The virus hasn’t gone away. Those that are vaccinated can still catch it but probably won’t get as sick or end up in hospital. I’m still going to be careful until numbers really go down.
