According to the mayo news recently, it's just over 4 million euros over the next 3 years.
Wrong...Knock has more that 50% of the amount of passengers that SNN get and getting closer all the time. So Knock is getting 1.3million a year from the government to help with infrastructure development and zero for running costs, while Shannon is getting 8 million a year just for running costs. Yeah sounds real fair alright...
they must really losing the run of themselves with all that money.
