Listener Denis got in touch with the show: 'I think we cannot social distance going forward...Take business first - Restaurants, pubs will all be gone. There is no way they will survive on a quarter of the expected footfall. Who pays for all this.  Take sport - All sport depends on gate recipes. My beloved Munster rugby will no exist. League of Ireland won’t exist. The Gaa said there will be no games while social distancing is in place. The social fall out. Take public transport - Government will have to subsidise them to 3/4 of there income. There is a lot bigger picture here. We need to get the government focused on it.' What do you think? Ciara hears from listeners
