O'Leary: 'Nothing complicated' about creating airport jobs

Ryanair Chief Executive Michael O'Leary has said there is "nothing complicated" about creating 300 new jobs at Dublin Airport.

He wants to rent or buy hangar 6 at the airport which is currently occupied by Aer Lingus, but he won't deal with the Dublin Airport Authority.

He said a deal could be done if the Tánaiste Mary Coughlan would act as an intermediary.

Mr O'Leary met with TDs from North Dublin this morning ahead of a meeting with Minister Coughlan later.

Fine Gael TD James Reilly was one of those who met with Mr O'Leary this morning and he said his constituents need the jobs on offer.
