“Like, I don’t wanna wear a mask anymore than you do,” Martin ‘Gilly’ Gilligan said tonight, “but all our sacrifices is for nuthin’ if students isn’t quarantined?”
“If I wanted to go to some oul’ wan’s funeral”, the Donegal man added, “I wouldn’t be able ta, all because a them, hi?”
Sitting across from him, wearing a visor pushed back up over his head, Donal Griffin said students behaviour was ‘a feckin’ disgrace’.
Pointing up at the visor, he said, “Do you think I want ta wear this thing? I’m only doin’ it because we all need ta keep each other safe.”
Both agreed that students who refused to wear protection like they did, should “automatically be fined €2,000”.
