Even airport in Dublin is an extravagance

THE Government's stance against airports outside Dublin doesn't go far enough. The buses that go from airport to airport can be expanded to take in Belfast, Heathrow, Standsted and perhaps De Gaulle.

Surely it would be better if we closed all Irish airports, as they are barely profitable anyway. Indeed Dublin Airport is an extravagance the country can no longer afford.

However, if we must have an airport -- shouldn't it be in Athlone?
