I don’t think Shannon is a waste of time, nor do I think it should be closed. Both Shannon and Cork need strong airports, but it’s the idea of one serving both (either Cork or Shannon) that just does not bear up to any sort of robust examination. Re phatmans comment, I don’t think either airports are “going nowhere”, both airports have their markets and activity levels and just need to find them.
On boundaries, my point isn’t to argue who has the most complex or hindering boundary, simply that it is a huge part of the reason for Cork Citys decline in population at the expense of the county.

Apart from the scary referencing to yourself in the 3rd person….that’s the best thing I’ve heard you say all week. The most galling thing is it’s public transport that needs such comprehensive reform yet the unions are so willing to cause huge disruption to the travelling public that the government just bends over….
