The pandemic and crossing the Border

 

Sir, – If, for example, Munster was a Covid-19 hotspot and the Tánaiste had suggested not to travel there, would there be a similar response from political parties?

A case of ideology over scientific advice? – Yours, etc,

Sir, – Do we need to get a grip?

I live in Dublin, and I may not travel to Wicklow.

It has not been possible for many people to travel from England to Wales.

In Europe, the Schengen free travel regime has been suspended in places.

In Australia, crossing across state lines has been suspended in many instances.

But here in Ireland, things are different,

We have two polities, but there must be no restraint on crossing the Border,

Mad, or what? – Yours, etc,

DECLAN DOYLE,

Clontarf,

Dublin 3.
