He’s got frequent cute hoor miles.

Former Clare County Councillor Pascal Fitzgerald was made a director [of the Irish Aviation Authority] at the beginning of August. Directors on the board of the Irish Aviation Authority are paid up to €13,000 a year
…Mr Fitzgerald, who is a publican, served as a councillor for ten years before he lost his seat in the Shannon area last May. He could not be contacted for comment.
The Department of Transport said the IAA carries out “a range of operational and regulatory functions and services relating to the safety and technical aspects of civil aviation.”

Boat it is so.

      Would he be flying? While I’ve little doubt it’s another example of cronyism, would a director of the IAA not have more to do with the business end of things and liaising with various government bodies, organisations and groups on behalf of the IAA? In that regard, someone who runs their own business and deals with people in various capacities could fit the bill. There’ll definitely be more qualified people out there, but I don’t know if I’d go as far as to say this guy is unsuitable without knowing all the details.

    Same old tricks being done. Irish politics is full of this shit. And we’ll take it up the back side like the good little moaning Irish people that we are.

    It could be pointed out that he was a councillor for 10 years in the shannon area. The same shannon that contains shannon airport. The experience and expertise on boards needs to be varied and the interests off the irish aviation authority board would extend beyond simply flying
