some countries accept antigen tests probably more as summer progresses and Ireland seen as safe, also likely that pcr tests will be subsidised so as not to discriminate against the young although ireland might not play ball you could still benefit from a cheaper pcr test for return. If you want to travel just do it, the government doesn't control your life, you do.Heard on radio today you need to add the costs of two PCR tests and the possibility of quarantine if things change so I wouldn’t be comfortable booking yet.
That’s not how I would have read it or played it at all. You’re not supposed to GO until the 19th of July, so it’s fairly predictable that those flights were cancelled. It’s hard to see anything “strange” about it.So here were are in mid-June. Given the go date of July 19th in Ireland, we booked out with Ryanair to Greece on the 13th of July, and not returning until after the 19th. Greece will be open for holiday makers then, we adults will be vaccinated by then (plus 2 week as required) and the kids can take PCR tests to satisfy the inbound criteria in Greece. Ryanair then cancelled our flight, offering a refund of the fare as there are now no flights available prior to July 19th. We booked with Aer Lingus instead just yesterday, and sure enough, they also cancelled their flight and now no flights are available prior to the 19th. I have no data but I suspect these pre-July 19th flights were filling up nicely with people like me making a calculation that it will be possible by that stage to exit the country as long as the return date is after the 19th. It seems strange then that both domestic carriers have cut all pre July 19th options. Of course it might also be the case that they were empty and not viable. At any rate it is now getting a bit messy, and if there is a push to crush all international travel prior to the 19th then any flight out to anywhere could also be cancelled, at least with the domestic carriers. Which leaves us up the creek without a proverbial. Buyer beware!
Yes, that's certainly true. The calculation was that travelling out in the week before the 19th might buy us better value, but it's becoming....difficult.That’s not how I would have read it or played it at all. You’re not supposed to GO until the 19th of July, so it’s fairly predictable that those flights were cancelled. It’s hard to see anything “strange” about it.
I see Aer Lingus is canceling a number of flights to some European destinations for the remainder of 2021 they have not given exact details on the destinations affected,Aer Lingus flights booked a while Dublin to Perpignan 21st September.
Received cancellarion notice this afternoon.
Yesterday we were enjoying an outdoor coffee in The Club in UCD. At the table about 3 feet away from us there were two older men. One of them sneezed all over the table and his friend.....we were down wind from this person who after 15 months still did not know that you have to cover your mouth when you sneeze. It was disgusting.....we decided to move and just as we were leaving the table....he sneezed again.....over the table and his friend
I wouldn't worry too much about it. If as you say they were elderly people we're being told they're the good ones now, as they're vaccinated. The pollen count this weather is very high and the poor soul just might have an allergy, hence the sneezing and probably no tissue. Next time that happens bring a tissue over to the unfortunate person. A big ignorant sneeze is a devil of a thing and know what? Most people at some stage are caught unawares by one. Next time, it could be you
We have been told to sneeze into the crook of our arm the old man did not do so, The old man's actions cause me problems because I intend to Holidaying in Ireland this Summer and hope to eat out if I think it is safe to do so,We have been told to sneeze in to the crook of our arm. Was this person not able to do this? We can all be caught out by an instant sneeze but on this occasion the person sneezed a second time. Plenty of time to gather himself and not sneeze over the table or his companion.
