Real hangar tale is yet to be told

THE continuing row over the 300 jobs that may be created in Hanger 6 pales into insignificance when one considers the 960 existing jobs that could have been saved in the management buyout proposals of last year at a cost of €25m to the Government.

Mary Coughlan rejected this plan and many of the 30 other expressions of interest in the facility, but backed the Dublin aerospace plan that has so far "created 25 jobs".

Ms Coughlan now wants to invest €25m-plus to build a new hangar in the middle of the already existing six empty hangars. The minister's incompetence seems to be the only thing that has come out of this debacle intact.
