Covid-19 – Tough Times Ahead But This Too Shall Pass

Ask ‘What can I do?’

Last night’s somewhat emotional ‘State of the Irish Nation Address‘ by our caretaker Taoiseach, Mr Leo Varadkar, showed great sincerity, empathy and leadership, while calmly warning this country, as a whole, on what to expect during this Covid-19 global pandemic.

While sincerity and empathy can be classified as welcome personal qualities, Leadership above all is about keeping our small nation collective and driven towards a common goal.

Ely’s Centra, Inver, Slievenamon Road, Thurles.

Meanwhile here in our Thurles community, leadership is being shown by at least two businesses in particular:-

(A) John Lacy – Lacy’s Butchers, Friar Street, Thurles.

Using Social Media he and his staff state:- “We are open for Business this week. However, with the growing seriousness of the Covid-19 virus in Ireland, please help us by taking on board a few cautious steps & little tips”.
If possible, ring in your order on Tel. No. 0504-21447 with an estimated time for collection. (please allow at least 90 minutes)
If possible, call/collection, Max of 2 customers in premises together
and wait outside until only one customer remains in the premises.
We love our customers one & all, however during this difficult time, please keep visits & chit chat short and sweet, we will catch up properly when this all blows over.
Please where possible pay by CONTACT LESS.
Please keep with guidelines by practising personal protective hygiene.

Thank you, Lacey’s Butchers.

(B) Ely’s Supermarket – Ely’s Centra, Inver, The Mall, Slievenamon Road, Thurles.

Again, using Social Media, the proprietors of Ely’s Supermarket and their staff are offering a ‘Home Delivery Service’.
