"Paddy the Cope" Gallagher pictured beside The Cope supermarket. His somewhat unusual middle name 'The Cope' refers to his family connection to The Cope agricultural cooperative which operates in The Rosses area of Donegal. 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.

Today we enter phase 1 which means
-a return to work for outdoor workers in areas such as construction, gardeners
-retailers who primarily operate outdoors such as garden centres, hardware stores and farmers markets will be allowed to reopen.
-allowed to exercise with others in small groups of up to four people while having no contact
still required is social distancing, 5km limit from home for exercise and if you don't need to be out then stay in. There are 5 phases with about 3 weeks between each one. Hopefully we will meet all the guidelines.
