I recall direct flights to Boston in the recent pre-covid past.

Did they have to reverse into the fields in Ballygarvan to be able to take off?

They announced this a few weeks back and there was quite a funny thread on the Echo or Examiner facebook page where there were a plethora of the usual idiots saying it was a disgrace that they weren't doing this during the full lockdown, the airport people are stupid, the gubbermint are stupid etc etc.

One fella, obviously with some knowledge of what planning goes into major multi-million construction projects, took it upon himself to continually pwn the lot of them getting into the specifics of why you couldn't just press the button and send out the builders.

A brief moment of hilarity in an otherwise depressing sea of facebook stooges.

The fact the airport is on the south side is further proof that successive
governments hate the northside,

No jimmy, it's proof that a Fianna Fail hack got seen after when his land was used to build it.
It is fog bound and south of the river putting it further from a hinterland of potential customers.

Cork Airport had allegedly been pencilled in for east Cork but FF (yeah I know, you're a "SF voter") were up to their tricks.

Given that the airport is currently running at something like 5% (?) capacity why is there a wait until Autumn to do carry out the repairs? It was rumoured to be happening many many weeks ago. Just how many months does it take to put the necessary crew and materials in place?

Public procurement and tendering takes forever in this State.


DAA is State owned and the Irish Public Service would lose a race with a glacier.
