It is a while since people have been talking about congestion at Dublin Airport, writes Eoghan Corry.

The August Bank Holiday sent the scales tipping past 80,000 passengers a day. On Sunday, June 28, 91,698 people passed through the airport's two terminals: the busiest day there in eight years.

The DAA claims congestion is no longer the problem it once was. We have two terminals now, not like 2007 and 2008, when more than 23 million people a year squashed through the single terminal.
