Galway was losing money hand over fist, board taking large salaries, it's only airline had pulled out and no hope of a replacement, and numbers were below 50,000 for last year. Even the Galwegians didn't support it staying open (other than counselors talking s***e).

Knock is a completely different animal, 700,000 passengers and growing 10% annually, 5 major airlines, charters, jet services, employs 100-150, and it about breaks even with tiny state support. Should be the model for all airports in this country. Time some locals started appreciated it.
