hi there, ive skipped thru these pages so forgive me if this point has been made already:

Only in Ireland it seems that there can be an argument about whether an airport in the middle of nowhere with a long history of gov. support (open skies policy strong midwest lobby) and having to rely on miltary flights and having to beg the likes of ryanair to locate to the airport which is much bigger capacity then its passengers numbers deserve is a more viable prospect then an airport near the 2nd largest population centre(theres almost half a million people in cork county alone) which is the de facto capital/centre of munster an despite being restricted by the government from offering transatlantic flights and which hasnt bent over backwards to accomodate ryanair still manages to pull in near equal numbers to shannon.if cork airport enjoyed the kind of support shannon has enjoyed imagine where it would be now!!
