    Dublin airport is closed again today, hopefully will re-open this afternoon. Best of luck to all those trying to get home for Christmas. The airlines will be putting on extra flights and doing their best to clear the backlog and get as many people on to the flights they are waiting for.

    Feel really sorry for anybody trying to get into or out of the country to be with family for Christmas.

    It must be so frustrating, hopefully it ll stay open for the rest of the day and tomorrow and everybody can get to where they want to be.

    How nice would it be to be jetting off somewhere warm and sunny for a couple of weeks 8) 8)

    Aer Lingus cancelled all outgoing flights that were scheduled after 4pm today while they clear the backlog and hopefully, flights will resume tomorrow.

    Would love a bit of sun…be so nice to sit on a beach now 🙄 🙄

    Airport closed until 11pm!!!! Its heartbreaking for anyone trying to get home…. our friends were to be coming home from Boston for the holidays, they had the boys xmas presents etc… they are sooo upset, but they are heading to New York to a plush 5 star hotel to make up for not getting home to family and friends…. I think the hardest thing is mums or dads not getting home to their kids, it would be my worst nightmare

    Now closed until 5am.. boo..hoo.

    My brother is trying to get home from San fran tomorrow. Please, please let there be a miricle.

    Also, My brothers girlfriend was trying to get home to her mother in Slovakia for xmas day, her dad just passed away a couple of months ago, so she is so upset. Anyway there is no hope of that now. She is coming to my mams instead.

    Hopefully my brother will make it or my mam will be heart broken if he doesnt.

    I know how you feel, my brothers flight from paris has been cancelled.

    He is now stuck in paris alone for christmas.

    He made it all the way from san fran to there but can get no further, so near but so very far away.

    I know he is not hurt & can look after himself, it could be way worse, but i cant stop crying since i heard.
