Minister For Transport Comments On Shannon Airport’s Future

On Friday’s Morning Focus, Gavin Grace was joined by Minister for Transport, and Environment, Climate and Communication, Eamon Ryan.

The Green Party Leader began by discussing the latest announcment that funding has been made available for up to 248 new jobs in local authorities to expand walking and cycling facilities all over the country – including Clare.

Minister Ryan then discussed the future of the region’s airport.


He effectively ruled out a restructuring of Shannon Group and suggested an an emphasis on slow tourism in the region, rather than the re-directing of flights as a path for recovery.
