Transport Minister Eamon Ryan joined us on Friday’s programme, for a wide-ranging interview that touched on a number of subjects, including the future of Shannon Airport.

In terms of boosting traffic levels in Shannon, after COVID, he told us that instead of direct support to allow Shannon to secure more flights, he believes building up the region to enable it to attract more flights would be a better approach.

But if these comments are reflective of government policy in the years to come, what does it mean for Shannon and for Clare?


On Monday’s Morning Focus, Gavin Grace spoke to ex-Shannon Councillor, Patricia McCarthy and ex Fianna Fáil TD and Minister Tony Killeen.
