Fresh from the announcement that he is to become the new Chairperson of Shannon Group, Pádraig Ó Céidigh is to appear before the Joint Committee on Transport and Communications on Thursday morning.
Cathaoirleach of the Committee, Limerick TD, Kieran O’Donnell (FG) outlined that the Galway man will have an understanding to bring Shannon Airport forward.
He explained, “One of the roles of Joint Committees is to invite the Chairperson designate of a statutory agency, prior to their appointment, before the Committee to discuss their strategic priorities for the role”.
O’Donnell added, “Pádraig Ó Céidigh has a proven track record in business and more particularly in aviation, which has to be the key focus for the Shannon Group. Coming from the Western seaboard also gives him a keen understanding of the environment in which Shannon Airport operates”.
A strategic vision for Shannon Group is expected to be shared with the Committee and plans to rebuild Shannon Airport in the aftermath of the pandemic.
