Statement By Ireland West Airport Knock’s Managing Director
The statement published on Ireland West Airport Knock’s website included a statement from its managing director, Joe Gilmore, in which he said, “After a tough period over the last two years – for both the airport and, indeed, charities around the country – we are delighted to be relaunching our annual charity programme and partnering with three great charities in 2022. Our staff charity programme has, to date, raised almost €150,000 for Irish charities, and we hope this year will again see much-needed funds raised for the three new charities, who all undertake such fantastic work in our communities. The return of our hugely popular runway run for the first time since 2019 – which will take place on our newly resurfaced runway – we hope will be more popular than ever, as normality returns to everyday life.”
