People need to speak up to save Cork Airport

I am concerned not only that the Government will sell Ireland’s national carrier, Aer Lingus, but that we won’t have an airport in Cork. 

I support a ‘Save Cork Airport’ page on Facebook. It has 22,000 likes. I have set up an online petition, ‘Petitions24.com — Save Cork Airport.

People in Munster need to make their voices heard. Our airport has lost too many flights. I do not hear politicians fighting for our airport, nor do I hear business people expressing concern and Cork Airport itself is strangely quiet on its future.

I have no desire to travel to Dublin or Shannon for a flight when we have an airport on our doorstep.
