Madrid today.

Up to people now to start using them and quit moaning.
Yes, but it's only from June to September. I wouldn't use it during that period (Madrid is way too hot during Summer) but during the rest of the year yes.

You clearly need to get better acquainted with TINA.

or simply "Get on with it" or "just do it" might suit ?

and the lefties can have "Can't someone else pay" or "Just gimmie my free stuff"

Cork is now the only airport that can act as a gateway for two of Failte Ireland's major initiatives - the Wild Atlantic Way and the Ancient East. There's no excuse for it to remain as a distant afterthought to Terminal 2 at Dublin.

In my opinion Coveney is wrong and he probably knows it. Regardless of Cork's interest at board level in the DAA, that institution will still be run to the benefit of Dublin, and the detriment of Cork. The Minister will still call the shots, and it will always be very hard for people who are not familiar with Cork (like most of the Dublin based government) to see its potential. It is all about potential. Cork has the potential to be much more than it is. There is more than one city in this country. Despite popular belief to the contrary, an urban area with more than 400k citizens, is substantial. There are many comparable areas across Europe, operating at a far more impressive economic level.

A Cork Airport Authority would have the power to maximise the airport and the city and county's potential without worrying about the effects on Dublin. I'm no fan of Michael O Leary, but if he could take over the old terminal, make it a hub for Irish budget traffic and do 10% of what he's done for Stanstead, in Cork - should that not be properly explored? We need to be careful about seeing Self serving (and there's nothing wrong with that when in business, but it is a reality) business men like Leary as White Knights for Cork, but we also need to be wary of a State that is more interested in developing Dublin than it is capable of seeing any potential to expand any other local economy.

Please raise this issue. Things can change - not very quickly - but they change nonetheless. I often wax lyrical about Socialism on this board, but to be honest, I see local issues as the most important. We'll never change the ways of the world, but we can change the county we live in and how it interacts with that world.
Dick you need to learn a bit about the aviation business.
Ryanair are pricks, they have damaged Cork airport. Did you know that there was a Polish carrier operating routes here called Wow, Ryanair went head to head with them on the routes they were operating out of Cork, Wow dropped the routes, those pricks in Ryanair then asked Cork to reduce their charges, they didn't, so the pricks in Ryanair pulled the flights from Cork and transferred them to Shannon.
Shannon is now independent, but Ryanair have them by the balls with regard to charges
If those pricks were given that terminal at Cork we would not have City jet, Aer Lingus would probably have 2 destinations out of Cork and we certainly would not now have Iberia operating flights out of there.

Ryanair are only interested in 1 thing, themselves
