A representative of Shannon Group is to appear before the Oireachtas COVID-19 committee later this month.
Following a private meeting of the committee on Tuesday, it was confirmed that representatives from Shannon Airport, Dublin Airport Authority, Aer Lingus and Ryanair have been invited to appear in the Dáil.
It is the first time a representative of Shannon Group will appear in the Dáil while Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary is also expected to attend on behalf of the airline with CEO of Shannon Group Mary Considine tipped to be their representative.
Clare TD, Michael McNamara (IND) made the proposal at a meeting of the committee on Tuesday. The Scariff native will chair the proposed meetings which take place on July 28th. Last month, he called for the entire Board of Shannon Group including Chairperson Rose Hynes to resign from their positions.
