Coonagh Aerodrome Closed due to Flooding

Operations at Coonagh Aerodrome have been suspended due to flooding at the site. It is believed works by the OPW (Office of Public Works) on the embankment on the River Shannon combined with Spring Tides caused the flooding. All ten based aircraft have been affected as well as other equipment and hangars. We wish the Limerick Flying Club all best in minimising the damage and hope that they get back flying very soon.
