LABOUR LEADER BRENDAN Howlin says if his party gets into government he will insist that inspections be carried out on all US military aircraft that land at Shannon Airport.

The issue of Ireland’s neutrality was highlighted last week when US Vice President Mike Pence met with US troops during a stopover at Shannon Airport.

Pence disembarked Air Force Two to meet the soldiers, who were on their way to Iraq, while they were also refuelling at the airport.

Well someone needs to man up and stop the US using us as an aircraft carrier.

We no longer have the likes of Clare Daly and Mick Wallace to go out on the runway to highlight it for us any more.

Ireland and the US enjoy the status of friendly nations.
I want that to continue.

Why do you want to turn the USA against Ireland?
What purpose would it serve?

Daly and Walllace have done well for themselves out of Shannon.
