In what can only be described as utterly disgraceful, beaches up and down the country were packed to the rafters today.
Advice from top medics that everyone should observe “social distancing” of at least 6ft or 2 metres seems to have gone in one ear and out the other as queues for chip vans saw lines of 30 people all bunched up on top of each other.
Along with that, people were recorded on the below footage in Howth, Dublin queueing up to get fish & chips.
Gardai were deployed to a number of public areas, including Dublin’s St Stephen Green to disperse large crowds who were congregating together and not adhering to the experts’ advice.
Top medics in the HSE have pleaded with the public to do what they’re asking right now – it’s not good enough to be ignoring their guidelines. Many Irish peoples’ lives are at risk and further lockdown measures will be imposed for a much longer time because people are being completely selfish and ignorant by disregarding all guidelines set out by Dr Tony Holohan and his team.
