on the radio we heard that the Health Minister was asked if Santa was still coming even though travelling is not advised because of Covid.  He assured everyone by saying Santa is considered an essential worker and will be doing his work.  No worries, it's all sorted out.

The Cope, or the Templecrone Agricultural Co-operative Society is a co-operative retail chain indigenous to The Rosses area of County Donegal in Ireland. Founded in 1906, it has a number of normal supermarkets as well as a full department store, a builders merchants and an agricultural division.
The name comes from the inability of one of the founder shareholders to say Co-Op - as he could pronounce Cope, the name The Cope was adopted.
