Public views on Airport noise

Regulators will hear public views on noise from Dublin Airport as part of its assessment of plans by airport owner Dublin Airport Authority to loosen planning conditions for a newflying0221 runway.
State-owned DAA wants to alter planning conditions – dating from 2007 – that limit flights at Dublin Airport to 65 between 11pm and 7am. The restrictions will apply once a new runway it is building opens next year.
Locals, who oppose any easing of the restrictions, include Roderic O’Gorman TD, Minister of State for Equality and Disability, and a Green Party colleague of Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan, whose brief includes aviation.
The new Aircraft Noise Competent Authority (Anca), established by Fingal County Council, said on Tuesday it would hold a 14-week public consultation after publishing a draft regulatory decision on the issue.

Staycations within Ireland will be the main support for the tourism sector this summer, and Government pandemic help for businesses is likely to continue to be needed for thedonohoe1019 first half of the year, Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe has said.

Mr Donohoe was speaking after leading a video conference of the Eurogroup, at which the finance ministers were briefed on the outlook for the Covid-19 pandemic by the World Health Organisation’s emergencies chief, Mike Ryan.
Mr Donohoe said the briefing had revealed a “high level of uncertainty” about what lay ahead given the emergence of new variants of the disease, but that progress in vaccination “raises the prospect for gradual change” and that economic growth should return along with a gradual reopening of the economy in the second half of the year.
