John Mulligan, on Independent.ie, reports:
Chief executive Michael O’Leary has also been re-elected with 98.5pc of votes, as has independent director Kyran McLaughlin, who received just 66.8pc of votes in favour of his reappointment.
This is the first AGM that Ryanair has held since it agreed to recognise trade unions.
Ryanair did a dramatic turnaround this morning, permitting all media to its AGM. It occurred after the The Irish Independent, RTE and The Financial Times legitimately gained access to the event.
More as they get it.
