Tracking Wallace from Brazil to Shannon

I was delighted to learn recently that one of the country’s finest, Mr Michael Wallace TD, had made a safe return from the soccer world cup in Brazil.

Considering his recent financial woes this was a feat in itself and a true example of thriftiness and careful financial planning, not to mention the time off work he managed to garner.

Unfortunately his difficulty in navigating his way around Shannon Airport is cause for concern, his decision to wander around the restricted runway area demonstrates scant regard for safety and also his time wasting of those already over stretched airport police, our own Gardaí and no doubt the office of the DPP, also raises some questions.
