Alan Murry. One of the HSE’s constant shining stars. Míle buíochas, Alan!

aurora-borealis-1938351 (1)Many people in an area of Dublin, served by a certain local HSE health clinic.  Would like to express their sincere appreciation of the fantastic help and assistance given to them by a certain, very modest, ALAN MURRY.

Alan, who while smilingly and cheerfully, spreading good vibes, not only makes every endeavour to assist the clinic’s clients during it’s and his duty hours. But also even does so in his lunch breaks, etc.

All who benefit from your humanity would like to say, Alan, you’re a star!  Hopefully, someone will name one after you!


Will this also be the case with taxis? If not, why not? Taxis are even less social distance capable than any other public transport service!

One is amazed to walk past a local taxi rank, to see several drivers sitting in their cabs, who are not wearing protective face masks and/or having their taxi fitted with a suitable separation screen between them and their passengers.

One also observes passengers entering these taxis, without wearing a protective face mask,  this is a threat to the driver and future passengers using that taxi after them!IMG_0784

Also, you get to see a particular taxi from this rank, taking a fare, which is quite obviously a local trip, as that same taxi is back on the rank within minutes ready to take another fare. Or are they really, what about sanitizing the taxi between fares?

Actions speak louder than words!!!!


It’s rather telling when sports people, like rugby and soccer players  are volunteering, to be foregoing of their wages for many months.

Yet our President and other politicians just simply decline to do likewise.

Donating books to libraries doesn’t  really cut the mustard!

We are all in this together, or are we?

Looking to New Zealand!

Here’s a thought for all our politicians.

New Zealand’s government and PM are taking six months 20% pay cut in solidarity with those hardest hit by the Covit19 crisis.

Any danger our politicians might do the same?

Maybe even donate the balance to assisting the Simon Community whose funds are drying up?

Might you be listening Mr President?

Perhaps you might follow the example of French President Emmanuel Macron, who last year announced he has waived his pension rights!

There again, its more likely that pigs do actually fly!
