Travel Counsellor Advises Clare People Not To Fly Off The Handle Over Limerick Airport Misnomer

In a statement released to Clare FM, Aer Lingus said it can “confirm the issue has since been resolved” and explained the mistake was made because the digital ad was “promoting the Limerick region”.


Gearoid Mannion of Gearoid Mannion Travel Counsellor in Ennis says it’s not uncommon for an airport to be associated with the closest city to it.
