I THINK it's deplorable and shameful that the Irish Tourist Board and Aer Lingus do not promote Shannon Airport and the west coast of Ireland.  Everything is geared towards Dublin.

Dublin is cold-hearted, dangerous and unfriendly while the rest of Ireland, especially the west coast, is the opposite. 

What right has Dublin to the vast majority of the tourists? No right, that's what.
The politicians of Clare, Limerick and the surrounding counties should rise up against this situation. So far they have been totally useless.

If something is not done Shannon Airport could close down.  I kid you not.
