    Did you notice how many yellow car number plates were on the road in Kerry until recently!
    I myself never seen so many.
    The state can not stop visitors from abroad from visiting us!
    But when the so called lethal killer virus with an average age of its victims being 84 years of age and their odds of survival is 94.6% is now in the country thanks to our visits, it is your fault ? Yes, the Irish who never left the country and were already locked down – it’s their fault and the government will now have to lock them down again until you wake up!
    P.S. the Garda will be happy to enforce taking your rights away, the same rights which they swore be protect as they are making a killing too, money for nothing!
    LOL.
