Trip to the Aviva planned on Monday for my first shot of vaccine.

Not sure if it's a Leinster Jersey day or an Ireland Jersey day.
Either way we do expect to see the flag with you

You see I thought about bringing the Flag but I felt it was over the top and no one else would think of it.

Now I have to reevaluate the idea.

Being done with exams for another year.

Don't know why I decided to do a Masters and run a consultancy at the same time but I'm very glad my wife convinced me to only do 2 modules a year. :shock:

Fair play to you and congratulations. It can't have been easy especially with the backdrop of the pandemic. I often rue not having done a Masters myself, but then I remember I did the absolute bare minimum to get my degree and even that seemed too much like hard work
This is the way

In retrospect it made it easier - what else was I going to do? It was always distance learning anyway so not much changed. Bigger problem was work getting in the way of studying - at some points I was a month behind simply because I was working every hour of the day.

Most people I know who have Masters don't really get much value out of it as it wasn't something that was needed for their jobs, just something they wanted to do. I'm only going for it because it's a requirement for a particular career path I want to go down, and thought it would be plain sailing like all my education up until now. But either I'm getting old and stupid or I'm reaching my limits :lol:

We're never slow in this country to point the finger at those responsible for screw-ups, whether it be financial, political, sporting or otherwise. Other than in the sporting life of the country, we tend not to seek out and praise the individuals or groups who run things without a hitch.

On that basis, I would love if some of our investigative journalists could turn their focus on those who have put the organisation and logistics together for the mass vaccination programmes at Aviva, City West & the Helix. There may well be other centres around the country which are receiving as much universal praise as the three big operations in Dublin, so my bad if I have ignored comparable good reports.

From end-users, through volunteer staff to security personnel on site, I have heard nothing but the highest praise and compliments for how these operations have been conducted. Highly competent staff, expert technical assistance, well thought through logistical planning, adequate and clean space and confidential process of vaccination.

Well done to whoever put this Plan together and led the delivery of it. It is a process and Programme of which we should be proud.

+1. I was in City West last Saturday for my AstraZeneca flavoured jab. It was ran and conducted with what I can only describe as military precision. Kudos to the logistical team who put everything in place. However I am hearing the MVC for Meath at Simonstown GFC is a bit of a sh*tshow.
