Scenes From Dublin's First "Open" Saturday Night Have Scared The Crap Out Of People

Last night was the first Saturday night of Ireland's Phase 3 reopening, which included the opening of pubs operating as restaurants and with strict social distancing guidelines.

Anecdotal evidence all week suggest there have been both strict adhering to the rules in some premises and others being so lenient that "lax" wouldn't even be a fair word to use. While there have been reports all around the country of the flouting of regulations and social distancing, scenes from Dublin city centre last night have particularly struck a chord with many people, with packed crowds gathering.

The Dame Lane area of Dublin was particularly worrying to many, with shots taken of packed crowds, no social distancing and the wearing of masks non existent.

While Covid-19 cases remain low in Ireland, the virus has not gone away. There were 11 cases cofirmed yesterday, along with one death, while the weekly average of cases has crept up in the last week. There is concern that many have decided enough is enough and refuse to sacrifice anymore, something that many social media users are furious at.
