Shannon Airport

Any person, let alone any politician in Ireland claiming that the closure of Shannon Airport hasn’t been ‘on the books‘ of this government for the last 10 years is either lying, or is ignorant of the truth. Ever since the ‘Open Skies’ policy the writing has been on the walls of every government building, ‘Dublin is Ireland‘ and Shannon is just an inconvenient problem that will now disappear. Wait until Aer Lingus begins to remove the Shannon/Dublin, and the Cork/Dublin routes. Then you will see that the air routes are more valuable to the airline, than the actual flights. Then you will know that Aer Lingus will begin to be sold off piecemeal just like the Eircom debacle.
