A vital reminder from Niall Breslin about the importance of social distancing.
I am seeing lots of groups of young people not adhering to the very important social distancing measures. Please please please chat to your mates about this . It’s crucial we take this seriously . We need peer responsibility #coronavirusireland pic.twitter.com/LOekRPvUtE

Mrs. Brown's Boys star Rory Cowan has the perfect musical riposte to the person who wants him to stop smiling for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis.
Someone posted a comment complaining about me smiling in photos I’m putting up on social media during this unpleasant crisis. I immediately thought of this song. It sums up how we’ll all get through this #COVID19 crisis. Sing along and feel better 😊 https://t.co/Ah2FWj1JPT

Among those who've enjoyed our DEEP DIVE INTO THE ARCHIVE interview with Lemmy, who wouldn't have stood for any of this Coronavirus nonsense, is one of the objects of his lustful desires, Maureen Nolan of The Nolans fame.
"I miss Lemmy all the time!" she confides, despite Mr. Kilmister saying about them: “Our paths crossed a few times in the ‘80s but, try as I might, I couldn’t get into their knickers. Who was the young blonde one? Bernadette. She was a good laugh. I’d like to meet ‘em again now, ‘cause if they’re like other Catholic girls I know, they’ll be making up for lost time.”
