Watch: Wexford Man Speaks Passionately Against An Extended Lockdown

A Wexford man took to Twitter to vent his anger today..

Wexford’s Gary Dempsey, who is a former profiessional footballer, spoke out against an extended Covid-19 lockdown in an open video address to his Twitter followers.

His video has resonated with a lot of other frustrated individuals, both in Ireland and across the UK. At the time of publication, the video has been viewed by over 145k people and has been shared widely across social media.

Watch the video below:

The video comes after Taoiseach Michael Martin noted that a significant lockdown will be further extended until the end of April in a late-night interview on Thursday with The Irish Mirror.

“We are looking at a continuation of severe restrictions certainly right into April. We’ll have some look at construction but then again it won’t be a full return to construction, we’ll assess what the public health advice is. We’ve already certainly indicated that beyond Easter we’ll look at it again but until the end of April you can look at significant restrictions and we’ll review it after that then because we’ll have to see where we are,” Martin said.

Whether you agree or disagree with Gary’s view, it’s always important to engage in healthy discussion and debate.

  1. There is no such thing as a health discussion or debate…. we have to do what we are told and dont ask any questions to our “leaders”
