Tired after a long 2 weeks, 20 hours wearing a mask on-and-off in GP, 60 hours in-and-out of PPE in a hub, teaching in @RCSI_Irl . Kitchen is a state. Dog under-walked. Maybe that partly explains my frustration, but the COVID19 commentary is off-focus & opinion-laden.

Gabriel Byrne on Liam Neeson's comments that #MeToo movement is a "witchhunt" that has gone too far: "I love Liam, I've been a friend of his for many, many years... but I would say the movement hasn't gone far enough." #LateLateShow
Gabriel Byrne: "And I think the pendulum has been so far in the opposite direction for so long, where you've had centuries and centuries of women silenced, discriminated...
