I wonder if there's a bit of kite flying going on here? I don't think there is much scope for an industry to go in there. There's plenty of land around. As for the park and ride, it's too far out really.
It's best future is as an airfield. Sligo Airport is a good example of what can be done. They're still acting as if an airfield needs scheduled passenger traffic. They need to go back to basics.
