Last weekend Germanwings introduced weekly flights between Knock and Cologne.
This event reminded us of a true story of the airport now known as ‘West of Ireland International’.
The airport was conceived by a Roman Catholic priest Monsignor James Horan in the early 1980s and work began. However the project ran out of money.
Father Horan was smart.
He built the two ends of the runway with the central section incomplete. The airport was useless.
Funds were found to finish it off!
Today it is Ireland’s fourth busiest moving around 750,000 passengers this year.
