What about returning to the UK , if you decide to take up that option ?
I'm not sure what you mean about returning to the UK, however at the end of my week's holiday I will drive back south, over the border and on to Dublin port for the ferry back to Holyhead, if that's what you mean. There is no need for people coming into Northern Ireland to isolate. At least not at the moment. Please God it stays that wayy.

Well thats it, we have cancelled this years trip to Ireland, and l have phoned Stenna Line and a full refund will be in my account within 7 working days. To be honest l think this is probably the most sensible, and right thing to do.
Hopefully try and get to lreland next year, and maybe have an extended stay.

Just a final note on this, l got my full refund from Stenna line the following day.
So will be contacting Docklow to see what accommodation is available in Sept.
Good luck and stay safe to the brave souls who are still travelling this year.

It is not looking good for the rest of the year to be honest ! It looked like we had it fairly under control until they reopened some of the pubs. Plus the meat factories seem to be a law onto themselves. We have had outbreaks in meat factories in 3 counties and those counties have been put back on lockdown but the meat factories are allowed to stay open. Mind you they are owned by government political party supporters. As I said in another thread, it is not by accident that Ireland is known as the most corrupt country in Europe !

Yes, Kevin, the meat plants are too close to the politicians. But I guess it will be like this till there is a vaccine. Just wait til the schools open next week!

There are festivals going on in the North for the next 4 or 5 weeks following the guidelines on distancing for draws and weigh ins etc.
