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
