Shannon to tighten security

SECURITY at Shannon Airport is expected to be stepped up this weekend for the monthly anti-war vigil following last Sunday's security breach which saw two protesters block the runway for a time.

Anti-war campaigners Margaretta D'Arcy (78) and Niall Farrell (59), entered the airport last Sunday to stage a 'peaceful protest' on the 11th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan.
