Hi

Does anyone know the details about a new airfield or regional airport being planned for Louth? I heard of plans to put one just south of Dundalk.

Does anyone have any info or contacts?
Feel free to PM if better

Hi Fenian,

First I've heard of it, where did you hear that? Willie Flood's guide already lists four airfields in Co. Louth but nothing on the scale of a regional airport.

Hi Fenian,

Looks like the origin of that article goes back to 1995, it was just republished in 2015 on the Indo website. I've looked up the companies mentioned in the article and they're all dissolved now. I can't see there being any economic benefit to having an airport there. We're struggling to keep the other regional airports open so any new ones are highly unlikely.

Regards,
Mark
