Liquidator appointed to airport

Aoife Finneran

A LIQUIDATOR has been appointed to the company which operates the Weston Aerodrome in west Dublin.

The executive airport near Celbridge on the Kildare/Dublin border was owned by hotelier Jim Mansfield before being taken over by NAMA.

Ms Justice Mary Laffoy appointed Luke Charleton, of Ernst & Young, as liquidator and granted him power to continue employing and power to borrow.

She also directed Mr Mansfield and his sons Patrick and Anthony to verify a statement of affairs up to the time they resigned from the company.

Weston, which is still open and operating as an airport, had been involved in a number of planning disputes with both Kildare and South Dublin county councils over the past decade.
