We all know the state of play, just be mindful and limit as best you can, if you have to go outside. If you live near an old or needy family or single person, if they know and trust you well, help if you are of a mind too. Praying and hoping the wave they think may come passes us by. Only listen to sound advice, government website or World Health Organisation.
From near and far you heard them shout for sales and banter, even a TV show inspired by them with Miss Browns Boys, Dublin Fair City wouldn't be much without them, thanks for the pic ladies

Don't know the full details, but there was some accident on the line, with the commute 6.15pm Dublin-Longford train, had to stop at Mullingar, 26th Feb 2020. The staff were excellent at handling the situation, and swiftly organised a bus service, calling on Slevins Coaches of Mullingar. Mick Price representing them, was at home having a wee nap when he got the call. Felt like only a few minutes, but came in no time and got us all the way home on the last leg to Longford Town. Thoughts with any family involved and driver of a previous train, and special thanks to the guys at Mullingar train station, for their professionalism.
