Please Stay At Home Over Bank Holiday Weekend

Corona-19 virus cases increase by 500, while associated deaths are confirmed at 28 more this evening.

The Department of Health have confirmed that a further 500 more cases of the coronavirus have been diagnosed here in the Republic of Ireland this evening, bringing the present toll of confirmed cases to 6,574 persons.

A further 28 deaths have also been confirmed, bringing the total number of related deaths since conception to 263.

In the words of Randy Travis, “There’s No Place Like Home”.

Stay at home where possible and stay alive, that is the advice from the Department of Health, as we begin this Easter Holiday period.

While we here in friendly Co. Tipperary normally welcome footfall in our towns, villages and tourist attractions; we are aware that there are now 140 confirmed Covid-19 cases in the Premier County to date, and with a number of deaths already registered; caused by a failure in our observance of social distancing.

A massive ‘Thank You’ to our present caretaker government and all front line workers, charged with bringing this situation under control.
