Whether it is Christmas welcomes, St. Patrick’s Day festivities or just holiday musical celebrations, our passengers love a bit of Irish music to welcome them home. This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the wonderful Barry Cogan and all at Comhaltas na Dúglaise for all that they do to promote Irish culture, particularly at Cork Airport.”
