Galway to Close?

AN IRISH government report has recommended the closure of Galway Airport and a minister announced that Public Service Obligation funding on the Galway to Dublin Aer Arann links could be withdrawn later this year.  Airport Manager Joe Walsh has vowed that “all the stops would be pulled out” to ensure the survival of the airpEditort.  “We are extremely upset at the content and recommendations of the report, which contains a series of inaccuracies and doesn’t factor in the importance of the airport to the economin fabric of the city, county and region.”
