Independent TD and Minister of State John Halligan says that he would “absolutely” ban such aircraft if it was up to him.

YESTERDAY, IT EMERGED that Junior Minister and Waterford TD John Halligan is personally opposed to the use of Shannon Airport by US military aircraft.

Halligan said that, were it up to him, he would instate a “total ban” on such activity.

“Absolutely. If I had my way, I wouldn’t let them land there at all,” he said in an interview with Hotpress.com.
