It's not the only airport in the entire country, you know.
Of course im a cheerleader for it i live beside it, unless you have the low level of local infrastructure that this region has you can not understand. It has brought a large amount of jobs and tourism to the region.
However that still doesn't mean im not objective. Read my posts i've always said that Knock was only a regional airport. It does cover a massive low density region Longford- Galway - Donegal and parts of the North (A full region that does not have any motorways to allow easy access to other airports) Dublin should be the only airport serving non-european long haul destinations. All others are nothing but regional airports serving relatively tiny populations.
Do you think Shannon should continue to be massively subsidised no matter how badly its run or undesired ? Also what is your problem with Knock, you now have a number of posts against it ? You dont pay for or contribute to it ? What is it about the success of this small regional airport that upsets you so much ? You appear to have a massive pro shannon bias for some reason, even with customers from the West and North west preferring Knock. You may want to look at a map and realise just how far south on the west coast Shannon is. It like Cork serves the South much more than the West or North West.
You'd prefer some of the anti Knock crap that was previously posted here went unchallenged ?
