*Barry Cotter on his way to Shannon Airport

SHAMROCK ROVERS have availed of the hassle-free experience at Shannon Airport ahead of their UEFA Champions League qualifier.

Reigning League of Ireland Premier Division champions, Shamrock Rovers face Malta outfit, Hibernians on Tuesday in the second leg of the first qualifying round for the European competition.

Stephen Bradley’s charges made the decision to fly from Shannon Airport for this trip to Malta and they flew out on Sunday afternoon. “The experience in Shannon Airport has been fantastic, staff couldn’t be more helpful, we’ve had no queues, it has been straight forward and straight in, the staff couldn’t have done enough for us, it’s been a fantastic experience and hopefully it’s not the last time we come through Shannon Airport,” Stephen said.

Ennis’ Barry Cotter who is part of the Shamrock Rovers team was among the travelling contingent. Cotter was an unused substitute in the 3-0 first leg win over the Paolo based club who won the Maltese Premier League last season.

Twenty three year old Barry signed for Rovers in August 2021 following a three year spell with Ipswich Town.

Ongoing lengthy queues at Dublin Airport have strengthened the potential for Shannon Airport to be classed as an ideal alternative with calls intensifying for a more balanced approach to aviation across the country.
