As you can imagine, there are some humdingers.
As most of us know, Taoiseach Micheál Martin announced yesterday that the easing of any remaining restrictions still in place would gradually ease over the next month, culminating in an easing of basically everything on the 22nd of October. It's big news, and obviously the people of Ireland have questions. Have people started making their Halloween costumes yet? Will Coppers be open for All Ireland Final night? What will Richard Chambers do when all the restrictions ease? We have answers to none of these questions, but we do have a round up of some of our favourite tweets following the announcement.

Well? Can't we?
What happens to Richard Chambers after the 22nd of October? Does he go into hibernation until the next pandemic or do we make a rota and each of us takes him for a different weekend?

I'll take him to the zoo, you take him to crazy golf next week.
