Print Ryanair adds new routes RYANAIR has announced two new routes out of Shannon airport, bringing to 11 the number of routes it will operate from there this winter.The airline announced that it is to add a daily Manchester service, replacing a three times weekly Liverpool service, and a weekly flight to Kaunas in Lithuania, as well as extra flights on Stansted, to its winter schedule, starting at the end of October.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Peter Bellew, the budget airline’s marketing director and airport CEO Neil Paykey, made the announcement at a press conference in King John’s castle.Mr Bellew said the Manchester flights will have a “much larger catchment area,” and will deliver more inward-bound passengers to Shannon.Asked if the airline had been given a sweetheart deal to get it back into Shannon and whether the deal is sustainable, the airport CEO said that they were “well aware in our dealings with Ryanair that we were not the cheapest airport”.Mr Bellew agreed but said that dealing with airports is “not only about money. We’ve seen what the team at Shannon can do – we give them new routes and they get up off their backsides and go out and market those routes themselves”.

New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will make his first appearance at Old Trafford in a pre-season friendly against Valencia on August 12. Press Association Van Gaal’s role as Holland coach will end after Saturday’s third-place play-off against Brazil at the World Cup and he will then turn his attention to making the Red Devils competitive again after last season’s seventh-placed finish – a dismal season which cost David Moyes his job. The Valencia friendly is also likely to feature new signings Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw playing at their new home for the first time. “This event marks the start of the next chapter at Old Trafford. With a new manager and new players making their first appearances in front of a home crowd,” said group managing director Richard Arnold.
